What is Free-Masonry?
Free-Masonry is an initiatory society, working for the progress of humanity, that proclaims absolute freedom of conscience and unlimited freedom in the search for truth. It is a philosophy emphasizing love for others, charity, and the search for truth. Free-Masonry gathers together men of all nationalities, races, ethnicities, and creeds, who are not dogmatically bound to any specific religious belief or philosophical view. To help members better fashion the “stone of self within the one Temple of humanity, it prescribes a symbolic, allegorical and ritualistic method seeking to overcome ignorance, intolerance, and prejudice in whatever form; and seeks to replace them with knowledge, wisdom, and service to the planet. Free-Masonry encourages a mutual respect for differences. It should be emphasized that no one individual or group “speaks for Free-Masonry.
The members of Vulcan Lodge welcomes individuals of good will and high values who are committed to a quest for spiritual progress—the "Know Thyself" of the philosopher Socrates—while working toward the progress of humanity.
