Becoming a Mason

2B1ASK1The right to petition for the degrees of Ancient Craft Freemasonry are rarely denied any man. But this right goes no further than granting the privilege of petitioning, and all who petition are not admitted.

The Masonic fraternity wants and welcomes ONLY men of high character and integrity, who should seek admission of their own free will and accord. Should a petitioner be accepted, he gets no more out of Masonry than he puts into it, and for every benefit received, a member is expected to tender some equivalent.

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 requirements for membership? 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 a hardship to yourself or your family.
  • You should be entering Masonry of your own free will and accord.

If you meet these minimum requirements, please follow the directions below to download and print out a copy of our Petition for membership. For petition to be LEGIT - you MUST use this official petition form.

(The petition is in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. If you don't have Acrobat, you can download a free Adobe Acrobat reader by clicking on the Adobe icon below.)

Ridgefield Park, NJ 07660

A Lodge Officer will contact you as soon as it's received and processed.
