Our Rituals

cropped-IMG_2063_2-copy.jpg

 

FarmHouse has the unique distinction of being a non-secretive fraternity.  This means that all of our rituals are available to the public on our International Website, and that every member will gladly tell you about any aspect of life as a FarmHouse man.  We believe that this openness promotes an environment where every man in the house is respected.

 

Words We Live By

 

The Object

The object of our fraternity is to promote good fellowship, to encourage studiousness, and to

inspire its members in seeking the best in their chosen lines of study as well as in life.

Progress shall mark our every step; the spirit of congeniality shall reign at all times; and

every member shall be honest with himself as with his brothers. Men elected to our

membership are considered to be of good moral character, to be high in scholarship, to have

the capacity for meeting and making friends, and to give promise of service to their fellow-

men and to the world. To be and become such may at times require a sacrifice of time,

pleasures and comforts.

The Prayer

Direct us, O Lord

With thy most gracious favors,

And further us with Thy continual help,

That in all our dealings together,

We make keep sacred those things which are most holy,

That are lives be made more pure,

True, and noble because of our relationships together, 

In this brotherhood

Amen

                                                                            

Builder of Men Creed

He best builds lives

of other men

Who starts from within

so that when

the Job’s all done

the Judge will say,

“A Master Builder passed this way.”
