Becoming a Mason

secret

Men who want to join Freemasonry seek harmony with their brothers, feel the need for self-improvement and wish to participate in making this world a better place to live. In our lodge, any man who becomes a Mason is taught a pattern for living – reverence, morality, kindness, honesty, dependability, and compassion. He must be prepared to honour his country, uphold its laws, and respect those in authority. Seekers must be prepared to maintain honourable relations with others and be willing to share in Masonic activities.

Our brotherhood includes men from all walks of life. The reasons men become Masons are as varied as the individuals that comprise our brotherhood. Some join because it’s a family tradition and they just follow in the footsteps of their father, their grandfather, their uncle, etc. Others want to improve the community in which they live by helping those in need and get together with like minded individuals.

To Be One … Ask One. It is a landmark, or rule, of Freemasonry that candidates must come “of their own free will and accord.” No man should be asked to join; on the contrary, he must ask to join.
