How to Become a Freemason

Please be aware that the Masonic Society is only a Masonic research organization. It CANNOT assist non-Masons who are seeking membership in the Masonic Fraternity. You MUST contact a lodge or the Grand Lodge in the jurisdiction where you live in order to become a Freemason.

We regularly get mails from non-Masons with questions about Masonry. In an attempt to offer some assistance, we are happy to provide the below PDF brochures. These brochures were originally published by various Masonic bodies and provide good information about Masonry for the non-Mason. Please feel free to copy and print out these brochures for yourself or someone who may be interested.

If you have an interest in joining a Masonic lodge, the best place to start is to ask a friend or relative who is a Mason. If you do not know someone who is a Mason, the next best thing to do is to contact the Grand Lodge in your jurisdiction (country, region, state, or province) to find a lodge in your community. For your convenience, a list of the Grand Lodges in the United States, Canada and Mexico, with links to their websites if available, is provided here. If you live in another part of the world, you might wish to try the United Grand Lodge of England’s list of recognized foreign grand lodges.
