Life as a Mason
What is the typical life of a Mason? It’s a question we get a lot from men who are deciding if they’d like to join the craft. The real answer is: There is no “typical” life of a Mason. Masons come from all walks of life — from Corporate CEOs to city bus drivers, from commodities brokers to auto mechanics. What unifies Masons is not where we come from or what we do for a living, but rather what we aspire to be.
Qualities of a Masonic Man
The essential qualities Masons share in their diverse lives are a belief in a Supreme Being and a desire to strive for:
- Fellowship with other Masons
- High moral standards
- Kindness in the home
- Courtesy in Society
- Honesty in business
- Fairness in all dealings
Being a Mason
Being a Mason is about a father helping his son make better decisions; a business leader striving to bring morality to the workplace; a thoughtful man learning to work through tough issues in his life.
Fellowship, friendship and community service
Throughout a Mason’s life, fellowship and friendship is a key component, as well as community service. The typical Mason wants to continue to grow as a man and to benefit society.
