Interested in Becoming a Freemason?

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organizations. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Freemasonry is a society of men of high moral character that are concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas – a progression of allegorical degrees which are learned by heart and performed within each Lodge – which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides. Freemasonry instills in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.

  • You must believe in a Supreme Being.

  • You must be joining of your own free will.

  •  You must be a man.

  • You must be of lawful age (18yrs of age or older).

  • You must come recommended by at least two existing Freemasons from the lodge you’re petitioning.
