Being a Mason
What is the typical life of a Mason? It’s a question we get a lot from men who are deciding if they’d like to join the craft. The real answer is there is no “typical” life of a Mason. Masons come from all walks of life – from corporate CEOs to city bus drivers, from commodities brokers to auto mechanics. What unifies Masons is not where we come from or what we do for a living, but rather what we aspire to be.
Being a Freemason is about a father helping his son make better decisions; a business leader striving to bring morality to the workplace; a thoughtful man learning to work through tough issues in his life.
Simply put, its about being the best man you can be.
Becoming a Mason
There are many personal benefits to becoming a Mason, and the rewards can be different for each person. But all Freemasons share a common goal: to become a better man.
Men age 18 and older who believe in a Supreme Being and meet the qualifications and standards for membership are eligible to petition a Lodge. We welcome men of every country, religion, race, age, income, education, and opinion.
Freemasonry requires that a man cannot be compelled to join our Fraternity and that he must seek admission based on his “own free will and accord.” Therefore, he must ask a member to sponsor his application.
