Information for Lodge Mentors and Personal Mentors

Craft Mentoring

Welcome to the website for Masonic Mentors. I have said before that it has to be right to explain to a brother what he has joined and to help him enjoy his masonry so that he wants to contribute to its future.

The logical result from this is that, not only will he feel involved in the life of his Lodge, but he will feel confident to discuss Freemasonry with his family and friends. This website provides a huge amount of material which is a valuable resource for any mentor and I am grateful to those brethren who have given the product of their work freely for the benefit of others. The content is continually being added to as new work is being added, which proves that mentoring is a dynamic process throughout the Craft.

From the Pro Grand Master, Peter Lowndes.
