I have found few websites that capture our intent as well as Oregon’s Enlightenment Ldg website in describing our hopes for Nobler Deeds. Higher Thoughts. Purer Actions.
“You’re a gentleman for the modern day: A person who loves history, the arts, philosophy and intellectual discourse for all the right reasons; someone who dresses and speaks well. You’re versatile for any occasion or situation.
You have a job, a steady life, and goals for your future.
You understand that challenges are important in making a man better.
A desire for knowledge, a sincere wish to be serviceable to your fellow man and a never-ending argument for nobler deeds, higher thoughts, and purer actions are some of the core principles that make you the person you are today.
If this sounds like you, then welcome to Enlightenment.”
Freemasonry awaits your arrival
