Becoming A Freemason
1. Ask yourself – why do you want to join?
What is it, that you search in Freemasonry? If you don’t know what you are looking for, then
others won’t be able to help you find it.
You have to know right away – if you want to join because of making financial or any other
material profit out of it – then you have knocked on the wrong door. Being a Freemason will
not make you rich, will not automatically help you advance in your job, will not reveal to you
hidden political secrets or treasures, Indeed Politics and Religion are strictly not to be
discussed in the lodge.
2. What will it do for you?
It will enrich you with knowledge, it will help you become a better person, it will motivate you
to improve your own and the life of others. It will open the doors to a true and genuine
brotherhood, friendship, trust. It will strengthen your moral values. The Motto of many
lodges is “Making good men better”.
3. To be one, ask one.
You cannot be invited to join masonry outright. In most cases this is strictly forbidden. A
mason can talk to you about masonry, can tell you many things about the lodge, the history
of the fraternity, the ideals… but he cannot invite you to join. So if you are interested – you
have to ask for yourself. It’s not something you should be worried about – most masons will
be proud to be asked!
4. Make sure that your family agrees with your decision.
If you are married or have a partner, you must have their consent and they must be aware of
the time commitment and financial implications involved, or you won’t be able to join!
Family, always comes first.
Freemasonry does not solicit members. However, anyone should feel free to approach any
Mason to seek further information about the Craft. If you are interested in joining, but do not
know anyone who is a Mason, please contact us by e-mail and a member of Mount Sinai
will get in touch with you. Only men can apply for membership.
In order to become a member, one must meet the following qualifications:
1. Be of mature age (21 years of age), with a good character and reputation.
2. Belief in the existence of a Supreme Being.
3. In this instance preferably reside or work in the London area.
4. Must be recommended by two members of the lodge.
5.Members of any religion, race and nationality are accepted.
