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:

The New Normal: Living Freemasonry Outside the Lodge

By Grand Master Shaun Bradshaw

I’m composing this article from what I hope is the other side of history.

At the present moment, COVID-19 (the coronavirus) has forced us to shelter in place and kept us away from so many of the people, places, and activities that bring us joy. This is especially true for us as Masons.

So much of our Masonic experience, until now, has been tied to our ability to attend lodge, perform our rituals, shake hands, share a meal, and discuss our thoughts with our brethren. But for now, at least, most of those experiences seem out of reach.

Our fraternity has existed through multiple wars, prior pandemics, various local and national tragedies, and societal upheavals, but despite all that our lodges (mostly) continued to meet, to bring brethren together to share their experiences, hopes, dreams, and desires for self-improvement.
