Your lodge will perform three degrees (initiation ceremonies) for your education and enjoyment. These ceremonies are very dignified and inspirational. At no time will horseplay or indignities enter into the program. These degrees are very solemn and Masons take the task of making Masons very seriously. After becoming a Master Mason (the third degree of the lodge) you may seek membership in the many other Masonic related groups. These are often referred to as Appendant Bodies.
The process will start with the Entered Apprentice degree and then move to the Fellow Craft degree and conclude with the Master Mason degree. This process usually takes 3-6 months. It is very rewarding and will help you get to know the brothers at your lodge. When completed you can proudly consider yourself a member of the world’s oldest fraternal organization.
There are many more degrees you can take and several different groups you may choose to get involved with as you grow in the fraternity. These are only available to you after becoming a Master Mason click the link below to find out more.
