Frequently asked questions on Freemasonry
Freemasonry is one of the world's oldest fraternal societies. The following information is intended to explain Freemasonry as it is practised under the United Grand Lodge of England, which administers Lodges of Freemasons in England and Wales and in many places overseas. Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its precepts by a series of rituals, which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons' customs and tools as allegorical guides.
A Freemason is encouraged to do his duty first to his God (by whatever name he is known) through his faith and religious practise and then, without detriment to his family and those dependent on him, to his neighbour through charity and service. None of these ideas is exclusively Masonic, but all should be universally acceptable.
