What is a Mason

Long Island Free Masons

Freemasonry is a fraternal organization dedicated to Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.

Brotherly Love:
How a man chooses to practice his personal religiousbeliefs is left entirely up to him, but Freemasonry recognizes thestrong bond which unites all people under One Creator. Our membersinclude men from a wide range of religious backgrounds, but each ofthem shares a commitment to this important principle.

Relief:
Because of our strong bond of Brotherly Love, Masons provideRelief to help those who are in need. This includes the notion ofcharity, and Masons provide much assistance to worthy charities, but it also means offering a helping hand, in other ways, to people that need assistance.

Truth:
As Masons, we are committed to being honest and truthful withother people. The Masonic Fraternity teaches a man to be faithful tohis responsibilities to God, his Country, his fellow man, his familyand himself. The Masonic principle of Truth also teaches a man tosearch for wisdom and understanding. For only in this way can hegrow and become a better person. The pursuit of knowledge is at thevery heart of our purpose.
