To become a Mason, you need only to “ask”, meet the qualifitions, and be accepted by a lodge. Anyone seeking membership into Freemasonry should first seek a Masonic friend to recommend him. He must sign a petition and return the petition to the lodge in which he wants to become a member. The petition will then be investigated and brought before the members of the lodge who will vote by secret ballot. In the event that you do not have a member of the Masonic Fraternity in your circle of friends and acquaintances, its recommended that you contact us via email for further assistance. When you email us, please be sure to include your full name, correct email address and phone number, and address – this is only necessary so that we can have a member of our lodge contact you.
