JOINING THE MASONS

 

One of the great things about the growth and development of Freemasonry is the historic belief that in order to become a Mason, you should ask a Mason for information on how to join. Below we have provided a brief overview regarding becoming a Mason, should you be interested, please feel free to contact us via email at info@ballardmasons.com.

 

Information About Masonry
 

Masons are men who voluntarily ask to join a lodge. They are accepted because they are good men who believe in the Fatherhood of God and Brotherhood of Man as well as hold high ethical and moral ideals. They go to meetings which they call the lodge, in order to learn and to teach what friendship, morality, and truth really involve as well as practice on a small scale the reality of brotherhood.

 

There are some meetings open to their wives, children, and friends where they promote an understanding of the serious nature of the Fraternity by entertainment and sociability. Practical programs for charity and relief are planned and executed. The special kinship they feel for each other as a brotherhood is their deepest satisfaction.
