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:

Esse Quam Videri, Brethren

By Grand Master Shaun Bradshaw

As I sit here writing my final article for the NC Mason, I am reflecting on this past year and what I want my closing message to be. It certainly has not been the year I planned and I am confident few, if any of us, anticipated what 2020 had in store.

Yet, despite the many challenges we have faced, I am hopeful that our fraternity can come out stronger if we focus on being what we say we are.

I firmly believe that lodges can once again be a moral and spiritual center for the next generation of men in our communities – we simply need to return to our heritage and take seriously the idea that we are the custodians of symbols rich in moral, ethical, and spiritual teachings.

And here’s the thing, I know it can be done. I have seen lodges with the enthusiasm, desire, and passion (both before and after our pandemic-driven shutdown) to return to our social, charitable, and ritualistic labors. They have shown that the fraternity can thrive again, although maybe not in terms of number of members, but in our impact to ourselves, our charities, and our communities.
