HAZING - There is absolutely no hazing permitted in the Masonic fraternity.
ATTENDANCE - There are no attendance requirements.
RELIGION - Freemasonry is not a religion. Your religious beliefs are your own. You must, however, believe in a Supreme Being.
A SECRET SOCIETY - Freemasonry is not a secret society. Our members do not hide their affiliation with us. Our buildings are well-marked and often available for community use. While there are a few confidential handgrips and passwords used to confirm membership, we have no secrets concerning our purpose and programs. Many of our activities are open to family and friends.

These are presented from memory by officers who are developing their leadership and public speaking skills. There is no requirement to memorize any ritual, but members can choose to participate as they wish.Click Here to Continue
