Freemasons have always enjoyed the trusted friendships that come through belonging to the organisation.
But in this open and transparent era in which we all live, we have a responsibility to discuss our organisation in the wider community.
Some of the best advocates for Freemasonry are our families and friends, it’s our responsibility to help them understand the value of Freemasonry in a way that is easily understood by those without a masonic background.
Freemasonry is founded upon principles of care, kindness, honesty and trust. These are timeless values that are as relevant to the world today as they were 300 years ago when the organisation was established, and throughout the 150 years we have supported and cared for the people of New Zealand.
Our organisation has given much and has much to offer. We are an amalgamation of the old and the new, of tradition and modernisation, and an organisation that fits comfortably into the 21st century, Our future is bright, and I am sure you will see men of calibre wanting to become Freemasons.
