This website was designed to provide information to our membership and also provide an opportunity for those who are not members to visit and see what Freemasonry is about.
This site also provides links to other Masonic Concordant bodies.
Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternity in the world. It is a fraternity of men who desire to make their lives better and to do what is right in the world. While Freemasonry is not a religion, it is religious in that it encourages all its members to be faithful and true to their religious beliefs.
Freemasonry encourages all Masons to respect all religions and has three guiding principles – Faith, Hope and Charity.
Grand Master’s Address
My theme for this year is mentorship. I am a strong believer inmentorship as I was mentored in my Lodge and in other bodies bysome great leaders and mentors in Freemasonry here on P.E.I. My mentorship has not come to an end simply because I am Grand Master, rather I strive to mentor others and pass on some of the knowledge that was given to me. I would like to see Lodges really address the topic of mentorship. I realize not all Lodges use the Mentor program which is available and a wonderful tool to be used with new Masons. Those that do use it can attest to its strengths.
However, I would like to see all Lodges and all Brethren participating in mentorship. What I mean by this is you’ll often hear people saying that you only get out of Freemasonry what you put into it. Well, if our newer members are not getting any direction after they become Master Masons then we as a Fraternity are not going to get strong members for the future if we are not wiling to develop and mentor them.
Get them involved right away, by exposing them to what happens outside of regular monthly meetings, put them on lodge committees so they can see how they operate, encourage them to go to Grand Lodge Visitations, Masonic Memorial Services, Ladies Nights, Charitable functions and call on them at least once in their first year to deliver an educational talk at a regular meeting but be certain to provide guidance when necessary.
Then, when they are ready, encourage them to get involved in some of the concordant bodies to expand their Freemasonic learning and understanding.
I may be Grand Master but I always remember that we all meet on level. Please help me and all Brethren when you can. We’re all in this
