Membership is open to men age 18 and older who believe in a Supreme Being and meet the qualifications and standards. Men of all ethnic and religious backgrounds are welcome – Freemasonry does not discriminate based upon religious or political views.
Masons do not recruit and therefore you must decide and ask to join. We will talk to you about the lodge, the history of Freemasonry, and what events we have planned at the Lodge, but to become a member, you must decide.
If you are interested in joining our Lodge, or just getting more information about the Fraternity, please feel to contact us online. We will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
The Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia website has many resources that may answer any questions you don’t find answered here – as well as a Lodge Locator if you would like to find a Lodge in the Washington DC area.
We also put on many special events which are open to the public. Come down and see us. We would be happy to talk to you and answer any questions you have about our Lodge and the fraternity itself.
Before submitting an application, we will want to get to know you. We are a society of friends and brothers, and as such, it is expected that you will get to know some of our members before you can be admitted. You will need to get two members to recommend you for membership, and for that, they need to get to know you.
Once you have submitted your application, it will be read at our next monthly business meeting. After the application is accepted, a background check will be conducted, and you will be contacted by a few members of the lodge who will interview you, in an effort to get to know you better and answer any questions you and your family have about the fraternity. After those members have submitted their reports, your application will be voted upon at the next business meeting. You will then be notified of the result, and then told what happens next!
