We cherish the opportunity to delve deeply into the mysteries of our craft, ever mindful that our attire and demeanor must be a fitting tribute to the sublime nature of our pursuits.

Our meetings are conducted with a solemnity befitting our high calling, and yet we never forget that the bond between our brethren is a source of joy and celebration. Thus, our Concordias are infused with conviviality and mirth, a testament to the enduring power of brotherhood.
