Not too long ago, I was browsing around on the MasonicFind Twitter page and I came across a rather odd question that took me by surprise – and to be fair also gave me a bit of a chuckle.
The question was; are the Freemasons still around?
Well, yes; we are; a brotherhood of men 5,000,000 members deep. At the time of writing, there are approximately 500,000 Freemasons in the UK and over 2,000,000 members in the United States alone.
We’ve been around for centuries and will continue to thrive for many more centuries to come.
What Do Freemasons Do Exactly?
Well for the uninitiated, Freemasonry is a organisation that brings together men of all age, races and religion and we meet fairly regularly to hold meetings and perform rituals mostly involving the initiation of new members into the brotherhood.

So, Are Many Freemasons Still Around?
Yes, and the number seems to be growing although Freemasonry in general should see how to captivate and educate the younger men that are coming of age and are interested in joining the Craft.
We have covered the future of Freemasonry in a great article by Thomas Whitney: Brethren Freemasons: Our Future Is Now!
