Mentoring Policy

Mentoring in Freemasonry involves us all, in how we look after our members, particularly our new members – how we nurture them – that is the secret of success. But Mentoring is not the responsibility of the Mentors alone; it falls on the shoulders of every member of the Lodge, and even its visitors, to embrace the concept that we are all members of the same Brotherhood or family, and that we are all bound to do to others as in similar circumstances we would wish they would do to us.

A successful Mentoring Policy is dependent on the performance of Mentors at all levels, Provincial, Lodge and Personal. A fundamental measure of its success is that every member of every Lodge feels that he belongs to his Lodge; is involved in its life and understands why he is a Freemason. If this can be achieved in all its members, the Lodge will be strong, possess a happy and welcoming atmosphere, and induce its members to introduce their friends and colleagues into its circle.

This new Mentoring Policy 2017 for the Province of Shropshire is an excellent guide, and its adoption will be a major factor in ensuring the continuing success of our Province for generations to come.

I enthusiastically endorse our Mentoring Policy and commend it to you all.

Roger Pemberton, Provincial Grand Master
