Freemasonry is the world's oldest and largest fraternity. For three centuries, it has beckoned men of good character to its ranks. It has no regard for differences in race, color, creed, religion or station in life. Using traditions and implements of antiquity, it seeks to inspire its members to live by the tenets of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.
While the moral philosophy of Freemasonry is founded upon religious principles, it is neither a religion nor a substitute for one. It does not solicit membership but welcomes men who have good morals and who profess a belief in a Supreme Being. Any man sincerely desirous of serving humanity needs only to ask a member in order to receive a petition for membership. Inquiries are also welcomed at the Grand Lodge office at (207) 843-1086 or by email to the GrandSecretary@mainemason.org
