We are Freemasons.

Freemasonry is one of the oldest social and charitable organisations in the World. Its roots lie in the traditions of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles.

Who we are.

Freemasons come from all walks of life—from the rich and famous to the poor and obscure that range from Barristers to Builders,  Accountants to Electricians, Estate Agents to  AirCon installers. Masons are men who have joined together to improve themselves. That is who we are.

Membership

If you are thinking about joining or want to talk to one of our membership team or find out more about Freemasonry contact our membership officer.He will answer your questions and tell you about the various reasons men become Freemasons and why he decided to join Freemasonry and the benefits they have enjoyed during their membership of the fraternity.On the following pages you will also find links to several accounts from men who have recently become a Freemason, at the Ave Fenix Lodge, Los Cristianos.

1st Degree 

This is a candidate first experience with the ceremonies of the Fraternity, and like all Masonic ceremonies, it is a solemn and meaningful event. Once a candidate completes the Entered Apprentice ceremony, he takes his first step as a Freemason and enjoys the title of Brother.

2nd Degree

The second ceremony exposes a Brother to more of the symbolism and philosophy of the Fraternity. For skilled Craftsmen, this degree would have marked a person’s progress from an apprentice to a journeyman.

3rd Degree

The last of the Lodge ceremonies, the Master Mason degree, makes a candidate a full member of the Fraternity, enjoying both the rights and responsibilities of membership. The Master Mason has the right to visit lodges throughout the world.

How we work.

1 Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and for society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby. Membership is open to any man over the age of 18 irrespective of their race, religion, job or financial situation. In total, there are more than 170 Lodges throughout Spain with more than 3500 members.

2 Lodge meetings are typically held in two parts. The first involves more administrative procedures, such as proposing and balloting for new members and receiving news about charitable fundraising. The second part focuses on ceremonies, which might relate to areas such as the admittance of new members or the installation of the Master of the Lodge and his officers – a process made up of three degrees, or stages, each one marked by a special ceremony.

3 True to the sense of friendship and togetherness among Freemasons, meetings are also social events, providing an occasion for members to dine together. Outside of the Lodge, activities include community fundraising and volunteering activities, as well as a varied programme of events where spouses, partners and families are welcome.
