The first step to becoming a Freemason, especially if you don’t know any, is to get to know some of us. Becoming a Freemason is a very personal decision and is not a right fit for everyone. We want to get to know you to make sure Masonry is right for you, and you should get to know us to understand if we are the right lodge for you.
We meet once each month and start by sitting down together to share a meal. We spend time catching up but will often have a presentation of an educational, historical, or philosophical nature. While meetings are reserved for only those who are Freemasons, guests and visitors are warmly received for dinner by invitation.
No one is asked to become a Freemason. This is not a society that has been privately selected by invitation only. Our Fraternity is built on free-minded men who seek out and ask to be made a Mason. Once you have gotten to know some of the members, ask for a petition. They will let you know if they think it is right for you and the right time to join.
Once you fill out your petition, you will be expected to give references to vouch for your character and values. This is one of the reasons it is so important to get to know some of the members. After you have your petition submitted, an investigation committee will be assigned to your request and will meet with you to explore your interest.
