How to Join>
Who Can Join?
To qualify for membership, a petitioner must be male, at least 18 years of age, one who believes in the existence
of a Supreme Being, of good moral character, motivated to join for reasons unrelated to personal gain or profit,
prompted by a favorable opinion of Freemasonry, desirous of earning knowledge and willing to conform to the
ancient usages and customs of the fraternity.
How To Join?
Our tradition was to wait for you to seek membership entirely of your own free will and accord. Today, however,
we allow our members to selectively invite men of good character, who will be a credit to our Fraternity. But
this doesn’t mean that you have to wait to be invited to join the Freemasons of Pennsylvania. Your interest is
enough, if you meet the qualifications. To start the process, you must first submit a petition for membership.
This petition will be read at a meeting of the Lodge you are seeking to join. You will then be visited by a
small committee from the Lodge who will ascertain your qualifications and answer any questions you or your
family may have regarding Freemasonry. At the next meeting, the members will vote on your petition for membership.
Once approved, you will be asked to attend three successive meetings, during which you will learn the teachings of
Freemasonry. In ceremonies known as Degrees, you will assume your vows of membership. The one-time fee for
joining Freemasonry -$300. In addition, members pay dues to their Lodge, averaging around $70 per year.
You can get a printed petition from our lodge we are there most Thursday evenings after 7 PM.
Also, you can print one from the grand lodge website at:
