Grand Master Bradshaw's Message Denouncing Racism, Promoting Peace

On behalf of the brethren of North Carolina, welcome! Since the 18th century, the Freemasons of North Carolina have sought to unite good men of all backgrounds and make them better husbands, fathers, and citizens by encouraging and cultivating friendship, morality, and brotherly love. There is no singular definition of Freemasonry. Freemasonry is many different things to each man who joins the fraternity. For some it is a place to make friends and acquaintances. For others it is a place to engage in introspection or discuss philosophy. And, for others it is a place to practice charity and goodwill. Through each of these endeavors--and countless more--we strive to make our world a better place for all people. Read More

Grand Master's Message

Read the Grand Master's latest message in the new NC Mason:

Who Comes Here?

By Grand Master Shaun Bradshaw

I’m going to say something that I believe most of my brethren will agree with, but which still seems too controversial to openly admit in our Fraternity.

Freemasonry IS NOT for everyone.

The Master Mason’s charge is clear on this fact when we tell the newly raised brother, “If in your circle of acquaintance, you find a person desirous of being initiated into Masonry, be particularly careful NOT to recommend him unless you are convinced he will conform to our rules.”

Now, let me be clear, I’m not suggesting our fraternity is elitist or only “certain people” are worthy of the honor of joining our craft. Rather, I call your attention to the Entered Apprentice catechism, which gives us an excellent definition of who is worthy of membership when we ask, “Where were you first prepared?” The answer, of course is, “In my heart.” But one natural question that arises is, “Prepared for what?”
