How Do I Become A Mason?

How Do I Become a Mason?

To Be One You Must Ask One! To become a Mason a man must: apply of his own free will and accord and with an open heart. Neither invitations nor solicitations are made to prospective members. If a man is interested in joining he should ask a Masonic friend, who will guide him in the right direction.

The requirements for membership are that you be a man of good character and reputation; that you be a peaceful citizen, and one who guards against intemperance and excess; and that you are one who respects genuine brotherhood and the general good of society. Freemasonry requires a belief in a supreme being.

Each applicant for membership must be vouched for by two members of the Fraternity who are in good standing and know the applicant and can vouch for his character and his reputation. In addition the applicant must be elected by a unanimous ballot. For more on becoming a Mason visit the Grand Lodge of Virginia web site:  http://www.grandlodgeofvirginia.org/
