    Questions about Freemasonry

    One of the oldest fraternal groups in existence is Freemasonry. Although they may come from various socioeconomic, racial, or religious origins, it unifies men of high character with a shared conviction in God’s fatherhood and humanity’s brotherhood. With its system of degrees, symbols, and fellowship opportunities, Freemasonry provides a method or blueprint for the good man to develop his acts and character further.

    Men of every nation, religion, race, age, level of Masonic Education, and viewpoint are welcome to join us. However, the following requirements must be met to join us:

    • A guy at least 18 years old (in certain countries, the minimum age can be as high as 21).
    • Believe in a Supreme Being, even though it is not concerned with doctrinal differences or specific religious views.
    • Being morally upright
    • Be inspired to join for causes other than your benefit or financial gain.
    • Be eager to learn and prepared to follow the Masonic Fraternity’s traditional rituals and practices.

    Yes, women are allowed to join Freemasonry in some countries and jurisdictions. However, in our Masonic Lodge, our focus remains on catering to males.
