To be A Mason You Must Ask A Mason
All you need do is to Ask.
For a Fraternity
steeped in over four hundred years of tradition,
you might think it is difficult to become a Mason.
It is. There is one major hurdle each candidate must pass.
They must ask.
Freemasonry accepts no
one for membership unless they come
of their own free will and accord, having already obtained a favorable
impression of our Fraternity.
There are few other requirements. You must:
1 - Be a man, over the age of twenty-one.
2 - Believe in a Supreme Being.
3 - Live an ethical and moral life.
4 - Have a strong
interest in the Fraternity and desire to participate in its
charities and its activities.
We believe that men are
first made Masons in their hearts, then they ask
to join our Fraternity.
Freemasonry will take these men — good men in their communities — and
help them become better men.
Each man brings
something different into the Fraternity, as different as the types
of men that become Masons. But each shares a common core of beliefs and of dreams;
each believes that, in a small way, by their actions they help make their world,
their communities, and themselves better.
