Hi, guys —

  • Will the Catholic Church allow members to be Freemasons?

I am Catholic and thinking of joining the Freemasons.

Mike replied:

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the question.

No. As my colleague Mary Ann stated in one of her replies below, Masons from the beginning have been dedicated to the destruction of the Church.

As my colleague John has said, a better choice would be the Knights of Columbus.

We've answered this question before and I've taken the time to pull some
postings from our knowledge base that specifically answers your question.

Also if you are interested, check out my new site:

Hope this helps,

Mike
