Brothers Ernst and Lucas after being raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason “Freemasonry is dedicated to the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God.  It uses the tools and implements of ancient architectural craftsmen symbolically in a system of instruction designed to build character and moral values in its members.  Its singular purpose is to ‘make good men better.’  Its bonds of friendship, compassion, and brotherly love have survived even the most divisive political, military, and religious conflicts through the centuries.  Freemasonry is a fraternity which encourages its members to practice the faith of their personal acceptance.  Masonry teaches that each person, through self-improvement and helping others, has an obligation to make a difference for good in the world.”
