Masonic Ritual refers to the scripted words and actions that are spoken or performed during the tiled meeting and degree work in a Masonic Lodge. It is the heart and soul of Freemasonry, and is the glue that holds a Lodge together and binds Freemasons throughout the world.

Without Masonic Ritual and the time-honored lessons it holds, the Fraternity would be just another service club. While Masonic Lodges serve their communities, their most important mission is to make good men better. This is achieved through the lessons portrayed in the Ritual.
