Webmaster (March 2017)
Freemasonry employs the tools
and instruments of stonemasonry
to teach a system of morality, friendship,
and brotherly love, hence, the standard
emblem of Freemasonry is the square and
compasses.
Freemasonry exists in various
forms all over the world, with a
membership estimated at around five
million (including approximately 480,000
in Great Britain and over two million in the
United States). There are more than 6,500
freemasons in New Zealand.
Over the last 30 odd years
freemasons in New Zealand have
donated over $4 million toward the
tertiary education of outstanding young
New Zealanders. This makes Freemasons
New Zealand one of the largest private
providers of tertiary scholarships.
We have again gone out to the
Lodge Almoners with this year's
Widow's Gift. We distributed just under
3,500 gifts, encouraging the Almoners to
treat it as a "gift for no reason".
Contrary to popular belief, the
Freemasons are not a secret
society. A Mason can freely tell people
they are a Mason. They just can’t reveal
the secrets of the order.
FREEMASONRY IS A SOCIETY THAT UNIFIES MEN OF HIGH IDEALS, REGARDLESS OF RACE, RELIGION, OR SOCIAL STATUS
