Free and Accepted MasonsThe World's First and Largest Fraternal Organization
Written by Grand Lodge of California Thursday, 20 April 2006 Masonry is the world's first and largest fraternal organization. It is a body of knowledge and a system of ethics based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to improve himself while being devoted to his family, faith, country, and fraternity. As Masons, we lead by example, give back to our communities, and support numerous Masonic philanthropies. We invest in children, our neighborhoods, and our future.
