What is a Mason?

The Fraternity of Free and Accepted Masons is the oldest, largest and most widely known fraternal organization in the world.

  • Members must be men, at least 18 years of age and of good moral character.
  • Freemasonry is not a religion. It only requires that its member have a belief in a Supreme Being.
  • The discussion of politics or religion is forbidden in Lodge.
  • There is no national governing body for Freemasonry in the United States. Each jurisdiction governs itself independently.
  • Members pay a one-time initiation fee and annual dues that vary by lodge.
