SO YOU'VE DECIDED THAT YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN BECOMING A MASON.... NOW WHAT?
This is one of the most frequently-asked questions we get in our e-mail each day. The process is really quite simple actually. If you have a friend or acquaintance who's a Mason, tell them of your interest. They'll provide you with the information necessary to proceed and will generally 'vouch' for you as one of good character and worthy of membership. They'll introduce you to the proper lodge officers, provide you with a petition form to complete, and explain what goes on at their lodge where you'll soon be welcomed as a member.
" Sometimes a person is reluctant to ask a friend to sponsor them as a member thinking it might be an imposition. Far from that, sponsoring a friend into Masonry is one of the greatest pleasures that any Mason can have. Don't ever feel you're imposing in this situation! "
Many of those interested in becoming Masons, though, don't know who to ask. They simply don't know anyone who's a Mason. (Surprisingly, they'll likely find later that several people they know are Masons but they just didn't realize that fact.) Our Brother, the lodge secretary, is an excellent contact person for questions regarding filling out and submitting the petition. You can contact him using our contact page, or directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
