Join­ing a Masonic Lodge is an oppor­tu­nity for qual­i­fied men to become mem­bers of the world’s old­est, largest, and best known fra­ter­nal orga­ni­za­tion. The process of becom­ing a mem­ber is divided into stages marked by three sep­a­rate cer­e­monies, the sym­bol­ism of which is intended to strengthen a man’s com­mit­ment to his Faith, his fam­ily, and his community.

Mas­ter Masons are men from a vari­ety of eth­nic, reli­gious, and eco­nomic back­grounds who share a belief in the broth­er­hood of man and the father­hood of God, work to improve them­selves and their com­mu­ni­ties, and are an asset to all who know them. Mem­ber­ship in a Masonic Lodge is an honor that says a great deal about the char­ac­ter and per­sonal integrity of a man.
