Freemasonry is the world’s oldest Fraternity with documented origins dating back to “Operative” guilds of Masons in Europe in the late 16th Century. Through its tenets of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth, Freemasonry provides men a framework upon which to improve themselves and their world. Freemasonry is not a religion, but requires its members to have a belief in a Supreme Being and attracts men of many faiths and walks of life.
