Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. It requires of its members a belief in God as part of the obligation of every responsible adult, but advocates no sectarian faith or practice. Masonic ceremonies include prayers, both traditional and extempore, to reaffirm each individual's dependence on God and to seek divine guidance. Freemasonry is open to men of any faith, but religion may not be discussed at Masonic meetings. For more information about Freemasons and religion visit msana.com

Why I am a Mason.

I have found Masons to be very loving and caring. Not only for Brothers but the community and widows of passed Brothers. I also have found that Masonry is very spiritual base, more so than any other organization I have ever been involved in. I mean this in a loving respect and not judgmental. I really enjoy my experience and am excited to continue my education and experience.
Personal pride to share the ideals and brotherhood of the Fraternity. My Masonic experience has helped me to live with a better understanding of my life as it relates to quality and preparation. I’m better prepared to live each day to the morals and principles that I have learned to this point.

I am always welcomed by the Brethren and am treated with dignity and respect. I have a feeling of belonging to something true and tried by history, a good something. I have but one regret and that is I did not take this step many years ago. Being a part of this Fraternity makes me look for the right path to take. It is becoming the compass to guide by, and I am glad to be a part of the oldest and greatest Fraternity ever to exist.

Officers of a Lodge are elected by the members of the lodge, although a few are appointed by the Worshipful Master. They are part of a progressive line, which is also known as going through the chairs. This line of succession moves up one position at a time from one year to the next.
The three stationed officer are the Worshipful Master, Senior Warden, and Junior Warden. All three are elected positions voted on my the members of the Lodge.
The appointed officers are the Senior Deacon, Junior Deacon, Senior Steward, Junior Steward, Marshal, Tiler and Chaplain which are appointed positions by the Worshipful Master. These are voted on my the members.
A Lodge may have various committees such as building, widow, sick and distressed, and numerous others that the Worshipful Master would ask Lodge members to serv on.
