A Warm Welcome to the Lodge of Friendship
A warm welcome to the Lodge of Friendship website. Our Lodge has had the pleasure of working under the Spanish Constitution since 1988 practicing the Emulation Ritual in English. If you have ventured here to explore what Freemasonry is, or what do we do then hopefully we can provide you with a taster for that and a bit more in our website.
We have built our website so it is easy for you to quickly get to what you are looking for, at the top of the page is the main menu and has everything organised in a easy to navigate manner.
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. Its symbolic roots lie in the traditions and ceremonies of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles.
Freemasonry is based on the belief that each man can make a difference in the world by improving himself, and taking an active role in his community. It is a charitable, benevolent, educational fraternity. Yet, Freemasonry forbids the discussion in Masonic meetings of religion, creeds, politics or other topics likely to excite personal animosities.
Our mission is to promote a way of life that binds like minded men into a worldwide Brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences; by teaching the great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth: and, by the outward expression of these, through its fellowship, its compassion and its concern, to find ways in which each may serve his God, his family, his country, his neighbors and himself.”
