If you've ever thought about becoming a Mason, you've come to the right place. Trying to 'whittle down' all of the confusing information about the organization can perhaps seem somewhat overwhelming. There are many terms which might be unfamiliar to you and there are so many questions to ask. We'll try to give you an understandable and informative explanation.
Being a Mason is being part of a worldwide fraternity which should never come before your religious or family commitments.
If you're here, we suspect you know that Prince Hall Freemasonry has a rich and extensive history which extends back over two hundred years. There are believed to be over a hundred thousand books which have been written on the subject and there are hundreds if not thousands of web sites as well. While every Mason is part of this long and proud chain of fraternalism, he is also intimately linked to his local lodge where his Masonic activities will start. Feel free to call, write or e-mail for further information.
On our site, we also have a Petition for Membership (it's in Adobe PDF Format and is for Virginia only) which you can download, print, and complete. If you know a Mason, talk to him about how to proceed. Otherwise, contact the Worshipful Master or the Secretary of the lodge.
A candidate for membership in Virginia must be sponsored by two Masons. The process, however, is not as daunting as it sometimes is imagined by those who look at Freemasonry from the outside. Even if you don't now know a Mason, you will once you contact us. There will be an inquiry to assure us that you are of good character and can be trusted to behave in a just and upright manner in all your dealings. You will become a true Brother to the millions of other Masons around the world and it is important that we can vouch for your trustworthiness.
Once you become a Mason, you'll find the friendship and fraternity open wide to you. It is truly unlike that of any other organization you might imagine. Ask any Mason: they'll tell you!
Now if you've read this far, we suspect you might be seriously considering membership. Take a moment now to make contact. So many men put it off and then, twenty years later, kick themselves for having not done it sooner. Don't you be that person!
