The mission of the Masons is to foster personal growth and improve the lives of others.
Our mission is guided by the enduring and relevant principles of our fraternity:
A true Freemason ought to show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and be kind to and understanding of his fellow human beings.
Freemasons are taught to practice charity, not only for their own, but also for the community at large.
Freemasons are taught to search for truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives.
