Are you interested in becoming a Mason? If you are, we hope the
information on this page will be a good starting point on your journey.
First of all, you may be wondering what are the membership requirements.
They are few and simple:
Being a man at least 18 years old
Having a belief in a Supreme Being.(No particular religion or
faith is required or excluded. All are welcome.)
You must be able to afford the initiation fees and the annual
dues without causing hardship to yourself or your family.
You should be entering Masonry of your own free will and accord.
If you meet these requirements, the next thing you should do is
talk to a Mason. If you have a friend who is a Mason, don't wait
for him to ask you to join, because he won't. Masonic law explicitly
forbids this--every member must join of their own free will and
accord. You can also check out some of the pages listed on our links
page. These contain alot of information about Freemasonry.

that is Rite. He is loyal to his Order, and whatever his Degree
he is Master of himself. In the Lodge of Life he wears unstained
the white Lambskin of Innocence. From his Initiation as an Entered
Apprentice he travels ever East toward the Light of Wisdom until
he receives the final - the Divine Password that admits him into
the Ineffable Presence of the Eternal Supreme Grand Master of
