Freemasonry is founded on 3 Great Principles which have been followed for centuries:
Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and will behave with compassion and understanding to his fellows.
From earliest times Freemasons have been taught to help, to the best of their ability, those in distress, without detriment to any who are dependent upon them, and to give their support to outside Charities.
Freemasons strive for truth both in their view of themselves and in their dealings with others. Masonry requires high moral standards and its members endeavour to uphold these principles in their public and private lives.
