I am proud to be known as a Freemason because Freemasonry is really a way of good living. Its main objective is to make good men better men by teaching them thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, honesty in business, courtesy in society and fairness in all things. It places great emphasis on charity - concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for all those in need. If everyone lived this way, it would be a very peaceful world indeed. There is a saying that,”you only get out what you put in”, I have put in a good deal of time and effort, and have been rewarded with a lot of pleasure and good company. I also really enjoy our meetings as I appreciate the warm friendship that invariably prevails, and I find the ceremonial and ritual work interesting both as an observer and as a participant. I would never have met and become friends with so many people if I had not met them through Freemasonry.
Our Provincial Grand Lodge holds four stated communications during the year and as Provincial Grand Master, I would welcome any visiting brethren who would care to attend. I would also extend a very warm welcome to those who might consider joining what is the oldest and noblest fraternal organisation in the world. The brethren in our Lodges are always ready to welcome and receive new members. Freemasonry is a shared experience. Many of our members have found that their involvement with the Masonic Order has provided them with happiness and warm friendship. Those who would care to share this experience, or perhaps seek more information should get in touch with the Provincial Grand Secretary at [email protected]
There is much to commend Freemasonry and I am sure you will be interested to read our web pages and gain an insight to our ancient Order and the various Masonic Lodges operating throughout Wicklow and Wexford.
Sincerely and fraternally,
R.W John Hobson
