Freemasonry is open to all men of good character who believe in a Supreme Being. Freemasonry does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, or social class. As a fraternal association dedicated to making good men better, Freemasonry respects the religious beliefs of all its members.
Throughout the ages, membership in our Most Ancient and Honorable Fraternity has been drawn from all walks of life which include major religious and political figures, presidents, governors, senators, kings, scientists, doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, businessmen, performers, sportsmen, skilled workers, etc.
Invitations are not issued to prospective members, nor are members solicited.
Ask and You Shall Be Given; Seek and You Shall Find; Knock and It Shall Be Opened Unto You
Our portals are wide open to good men who seek harmony with their fellow mankind, who feel the need for self-improvement and wish to participate in making this world a better place.
At Newtown Lodge No. 427 F & AM, everyone is well respected and valued because, for us, Lodge isn’t just a place where “Brotherly Love” is a mere a slogan, but it’s a true representation of the concept where members, families, friends and neighbors are always warmly welcomed.
