It's been about 5 years since I've been raised and I still love masonry as much as the day I was initiated. I and Hispanic and Catholic. I also have distant relations who are in the knights of columbus and we get along fine. I am a practicing catholic and I haven't had any problems wearing my ring during mass or anything like that. Out of pure curiosity are there any brethren who are catholic? Are there members of your church or family who give you a hard time?
