What is a Freemasonary

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest fraternal societies.

The lessons Freemasonry teaches in its ceremonies are to do with moral values (governing relations between people) and its acknowledgement, without in any way crossing the boundaries of religion, that everything depends on the providence of God.

Freemasons feel that these lessons apply just as much today as they did when it took its modern form at the turn of the 17th century.”
