What are the requirements to become a Mason?

Post date: Nov 4, 2008 8:50:14 PM

Anyone meeting the following primary requirements may petition a Massachusetts lodge for membership:

  1. You are an adult male (18 or older) of good character and recommended by a Massachusetts Mason.

  2. You believe in a Supreme Being - no atheist or agnostic can become a Mason - but we are not concerned with theological distinctions or your particular religious beliefs.

  3. You are interested in becoming a Mason because you hold a favorable opinion of our institution; and, your decision to apply is based on your own "free will and accord" - no one compelled you to join.
