Bearing in mind the tradition a motto upholds of the characteristics of its family perhaps a more appropriate translation of the multiple meanings from the conglomeration of words for the representation of our Lodge, in the best tradition and spirit, would be “Good, brave and honest”
Our Mission Statement
To make good men better
We accomplish this by encouraging a moral and spiritual way of life, promoting fellowship, and practicing universal benevolence and one’s faith for the cause of good. Masonry welcomes men who seek harmony with their fellow man and who wish to participate in making the world a better place in which to live by promoting the Masonic ideals of reverence, morality, kindness, honesty, dependability and compassion.
Kindness. Honesty. Courtesy. Dependability. Compassion.
Through its lessons, charitable work and fellowship amongst its members, Masonry stresses the principles of kindness and consideration at home, honesty in business, courtesy towards others, dependability in one’s work, compassion for the less fortunate and being a good citizen of the world. Masonry recognizes that each man has obligations to his family, his work, his religious beliefs, his community and himself – these must take priority and Masonry does not interfere with his ability to meet these obligations.
