Interested in becoming a Mason?
Becoming a Mason is more than just joining an organization, it is a way of life. You are starting a journey that millions of men have walked before you. The big question is: where do I start? We are here to help you every step of the way.
Step 1: Petition the Lodge
"TO BE ONE, ASK ONE." To become a member, you must first ask. As a rule, Masons do not actively recruit. Use our contact page to send us a message stating that you would like to petition Washington Lodge for membership. We will send you a peition to fill out, and you will send us back a compelted form. This starts the process.
Step 2: Evaluation
Members of the Lodge will contact you and we will arrange a time sit down with you in person. This is an opportunity for you to meet us and for us to meet you, as well as to answer any questions you may have. There are as many lodges as there are types of people, and every one has their own unique flavor. You'll be spending most of your time with the members of your Lodge, and we're here to make sure it's a good match.
Step 3: Voting
On the next regular meeting the Lodge will vote on whether admit you as a member. If the vote is favorable, then the journey begins!
Please read our FAQ page which may answer some of your basic questions about Freemasonry. Of course we are always available to answer any questions you may have about the fraternity and Washginton Lodge. Just use the contact page above and someone will be happy to speak with you.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
