Freemasonry is more relevant and important to society today than ever. It encompasses and embraces all the fundamental principles of good citizenship. Many of these are learnt through traditional ceremonies that take the form of one-act plays, leading to increased self-esteem and confidence. Every Freemason embarks on his own journey of self-discovery when he enters the organisation.
