Are you interested in becoming a Mason? If you are, we hope the information on this page will be a good starting point on your journey.

First of all, you may be wondering what are the membership requirements. They are few and simple:

  • Being a man at least 18 years old
  • Having a belief in a Supreme Being.(No particular religion or faith is required or excluded. All are welcome.)
  • You must be able to afford the initiation fees and the annual dues without causing hardship to yourself or your family.
  • You should be entering Masonry of your own free will and accord.

If you meet these requirements, the next thing you should do is talk to a Mason. If you have a friend who is a Mason, don't wait for him to ask you to join, because he won't. Masonic law explicitly forbids this--every member must join of their own free will and accord. You can also check out some of the pages listed on our links page. These contain alot of information about Freemasonry.

You may also want to check out information on becoming a Mason on the Grand Lodge of New Jersey website:

Finally, you need to petition a lodge. A petition can be obtained from a Freemason, or by contacting us:

Prepare for greatness:

From the Grand Lodge of Mass


A Mason is a Man and a Brother whose Trust is in God. He meets you on the Level and acts upon the Square. Truth is his Compass and he is ever Plumb. He has a true Grip on all that is Rite. He is loyal to his Order, and whatever his Degree he is Master of himself. In the Lodge of Life he wears unstained the white Lambskin of Innocence. From his Initiation as an Entered Apprentice he travels ever East toward the Light of Wisdom until he receives the final - the Divine Password that admits him into the Ineffable Presence of the Eternal Supreme Grand Master of the Universe-GOD.
