You've already passed the first step to become a freemason. Our hashtag "To Be One, Ask One" means to become a freemason, you can either ask a existing freemason, reach out to a Masonic lodge, or be asked to join.
After initial contact, we set up a time for you to come out and visit with some of our members at our establishment (physically or digitally). This is a very casual meet-and-greet to get to know one another, and ask any questions you may have. Next, an official petition is filled out and presented to the membership for voting, at our next stated meeting,
Approved! The membership has accepted to admit you as a new member. We schedule a mentor for you, and a time to come in to receive the first of your three degrees, the Entered Apprentice.
Congratulations! You're officially a Free and Accepted Mason! At this stage, you have limited knowledge, and therefore, limited ability in joining other Masonic bodies. You're next step is to start your Masonic journey and receive the first of your three degrees, in becoming a Master Mason. The first degree is Entered Apprentice, which is to signify your youth in Masonry.
After being initiated as an Entered Apprentice, you now have the opportunity to pass to the Fellow Craft degree. Signifying you've received knowledge in Freemasonry, but only partially.
The final and highest degree, the Master Mason. In this two-part degree, you will be immersed in the detailed teachings of our fraternity, dating back over 6,000 years. After being raised to this degree, you have full access to all the benefits of a Master Mason, which is attending/participating in other degrees, become a officer, and join appending Masonic bodies (York Rite, Scottish Rite, Shrine, etc.).
Limited on availability? We offer one-day classes throughout the state to become a Master Mason. Please contact us if you would like more information on "One-Day Classes".
