Greetings, my name is Matthew Jackering, Worshipful Master of Waverly 51 for 2014. Thank you for visiting our website.
Take a look around. We have a lot of information here for those who are looking for more information or interested in becoming a Mason. If you have any questions, please use our "contact us" form and someone will get back to you promptly.
Freemasonry is a faith based, non-denominational brotherhood of men who wish to improve themselves as a means of improving their community and society, are of good moral character, have a belief in a deity or supreme being, and high personal ethical standards.
Freemasonry is not a religon and does not advocate any one religion over another. As long as our members profess a faith in a Supreme Being, how each member goes about his faith is his choice. Freemasonry advocates personal involvement and learning in the faith of each member's choice.
Freemasons regard men for their inner character and not for their outward appearances or social status. With this belief, Freemasons enjoy the fellowship of like-minded individuals and practice the tenants of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth both in the lodge and in the community.
The only secrets in Freemasonry are some of the details of our rituals, however the lessons learned are freely shared with friends, family and loved ones, and anyone who expresses an interest.
Lastly, Freemasons are proud to be charitable both as a fraternity and as individuals by assisting others as our resorces allow and contributing to charitable works in our communities. We advocate in particular personal acts of chartiy by our members.
