There are several things you will need to know in order to successfully Petition our Lodge for initiation. First, if you don't currently know a Mason, simply visit our Lodge any Thursday between the hours of 6pm and 9pm. Let us know you're interested in learning more about the fraternity! Second, there are a few qualifications required of you:
- You must be a male, at least 18 years of age
- You must believe in a Deity
- You must be of good moral character
During your initial visit, you will be given a tour of our Lodge and given the opportunity to ask any questions or voice any concerns. In fact, you are welcome to bring any family member or significant other for your tour. Assuming you are satisfied with our Lodge and the explanations given, a Petition for initiation will be presented to you. You will be given the opportunity to complete it with the assistance of a Brother, or you may elect to return it at a later date.
Upon completion of your Petition, it MUST be signed by two active Brothers from Brandon Lodge. When your signed Petition is presented to our Secretary, the following fees and additional forms are required:
- Form submitting to a full criminal background check
- A non-refundable fee for background check
- A refundable initiation fee for your Entered Apprentice Degree
Cash, Check, or Money Order is acceptable for payment
Once a full criminal background check is returned to our satisfaction, your Petition will be presented to the Craft and voted on at our next Stated Communication. If your Petition is accepted by the Craft, an Investigation Committee will contact you personally to schedule an interview and continue your progress.
The Petition to receive the Three Symbolic Degrees of Freemasonry is now available online for you to download, fill out and print.
