Shriners Creed

2015 Alee Shriners. All rights reserved.

Shriners believe in God and that He created man to serve His purposes,

among which is service to others in His name.

We believe that care for the less fortunate, especially children who

suffer from burns and crippling disease, is our institutional calling.

We are patriots, each willing to serve his country with fidelity and

courage. We cherish independence under law and freedom with

responsibility.

As individuals we pledge ourselves to integrity, virtue and nobility of

character. Our intentions will be honorable, our relationships will be

trustworthy and our spirits forgiving of each other.

As brothers we offer each other fraternal affection and respect.

Together we will support each other in adherence to this creed, so that

we and our communities will be better because of our fraternity and its

principles.

As shriners we look beyond ourselves to serve the needs of others,

especially children who cannot help themselves. We believe Shriners

Hospitals to be the world’s greatest philanthropy and we covenant

with each other to support its “temples of mercy” with spirit, time,

talent and means.
