Friendship Lodge No. 84

Making Good Men Better

What are the Requirements to become a Mason?

  • Be a man at least 18 years old.
  • Have belief in a Supreme Being (of any faith. No particular religion or faith is required or excluded. All are welcome.
  • You should be someone who does, or wants to learn to, enjoy the company of other men from all different social classes, faiths, backgrounds, races, countries, etc. Masonry is universal in its  ideals.
  • If you are a family man, Masonry considers that your family obligations come FIRST, so you must be sure that you have the time to participate (usually two or three evenings each month, sometimes more if you get involved in lodge activities; and you can afford the initiation fees ($195) and the annual dues ($108) without hardship to yourself or your family.
  • You should be coming to Masonry “of your own free will and accord”, to learn to improve yourself and to enjoy the company of other good people, not because someone keeps pestering you to join or because you think it will help you "get ahead" in business.

To join, all you have to do is ask a Mason:

  • Maybe someone you already know (you may know more Masons that you believe).
  • Contact us to have a member call you and visit with you to answer all of your questions.
