Our doors are always open! We practice the principles that make our country great — at Masonic lodges, all men are equal, regardless of income, race, or religion. There are over 13,000 lodges in the U.S. You’ll find one in most small towns, and large cities usually have several. You can travel almost any place in the world and find the warm hand of brotherhood extended to you.

Freemasons believe their principles represent a way to achieve higher standards in life.

Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinion of others and behave with kindness and understanding.

Freemasons practice charity and care for their own as well as the community as a whole both by charitable giving and by voluntary work as individuals.

Freemasons strive for truth, requiring high moral standards and ethical conduct at all times.
How can I become a Mason?

To become a Freemason you must:
· Be a man of at least 18 years of age
· Be of good moral character
· Have a personal belief in a Supreme Being (the definition of a Supreme Being is a personal matter for each individual)
· Decide to become a Mason of "your own free will and accord" without expectation of any material gain or benefits
· Be loyal to your country
· Be dedicated to providing for your own family
· Have a sincere determination to conduct yourself in a manner that will earn the respect and trust of others
· Possess a desire to help others through community service and universal benevolence


· Talk with someone you know who is a Freemason
· If you do not know anyone who is a Mason, contact a Lodge in your neighborhood
· Masons do not solicit for members. You'll need to express your personal interest in joining Freemasonry
· You may be invited to meet with the Lodge Committee or selected Members to discuss your application and to answer your questions.
· Subject to you being considered eligible and properly motivated you will be asked to complete an application for membership and return it to your local Lodge Secretary
· Your application will be presented to a Lodge Meeting and a secret ballot conducted in which Members vote on your suitability. You will be notified of the result and invited to attend a Lodge Meeting for your initiation into Membership.
