Freemasons' Lodge

Consecrated : 10th March 1902

"From its origin to the present hour, in all its vicissitudes, Masonry has been the steady, unvarying friend of man" - Rev. Erastus Burr


How to Become a Freemason

      Many seek to enter the fraternity after coming across it in movies, books, and mainstream media. Freemasonry is often portrayed as a secret society trying to take over the world. The fact that many world leaders have been, and are, Freemasons, and books like The Da Vinci Code, have perpetuated this notion.

     Freemasons are not part of any such conspiracy, and people who attempt to join Freemasonry in the hope of gaining access to secrets do not have the right intentions. Simply put, Freemason lodges come into existence when a group of Masons want to share friendship and fraternity with others in the area. Freemasonry has its lodges throughout the free world, except where repressive governments make their existence difficult.

     One of Masonry's traditions is that they do not solicit members. Men must seek membership on their own initiative. To become one, you start by asking one. No man should enter Freemasonry in hope or expectation that he will derive any financial benefit from it.

    A man becomes a Freemason through his own volition. No one is asked to join its ranks. One must ask a Masonic friend to recommend him for membership. Members of the Lodge vote by secret ballot. When you're ready to join, you can send us an e-mail (at shillonglodge61@gmail.com) and someone will contact you regarding membership.
