Welcome brethren

It is indeed an honor to serve you as Grand Master this year.

Since the 18th century, West Virginia Freemasons have sought to unite good men of all backgrounds and make them better husbands, fathers, and citizens by encouraging and cultivating the masonic principles of friendship, morality, and brotherly love.

There is no definitive singular definition for Freemasonry. Freemasonry means many different things to each man who joins the fraternity. Among the many meanings is a place to form friendships and acquaintances, a place to engage in introspection or discuss philosophy.

It is also a place to practice charity and goodwill. Through each of these derived meanings as well as countless others, Freemasons strive to make our world a better place for all people.
