Freemasonry is believed to have begun its evolution 500 or more years ago in Scotland among the bands of working, skilled, builders known as “masons” (stonemasons). The traditional framework into which most Masonic degrees are woven is the story and symbolism of King Solomon’s Temple.
Masonic teaching is a system of education related
to the building of the Temple – especially the activities and traditional skills of those by whom it was designed and built, and is intended to maintain the interest of the candidate as he progresses through the Masonic degrees, thus rendering his development more effective.
The Erection and Consecration of Lodge Montefiore No.753 took place on 19 March 1888. The Lodge having been duly erected and consecrated, following the installation of the office-bearers, a number of founders were obligated in their allegiance to the lodge.
The first Regular meeting of the Lodge took place on the 9th April 1888 when the work of the lodge began in earnest. The Roll Book records the evenings labours.
Three great but simple principles, Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, unite Freemasons of every colour and many creeds. Non-Freemasons often unfairly criticise not knowing that members of the Craft are guided by such honorable objectives. The good Freemason builds these principles into his daily life as a law abiding man and citizen of the world.
This is the concern which each Freemason has for his Brother, which is readily shown by tolerance and respect for the beliefs, opinions and practices of his fellows and his willingness to care for his Brother and that Brother’s dependents
The Freemason is by nature and teaching a charitable man. He will cheerfully and kindly assist those less fortunate (whether Freemasons or not!). He will care for and support his community – local, national and international.
The Freemason believes in truth in all things, in honesty and integrity in his personal, business and public life, in fair dealings and in firm standards of decency and morality.
