Freemasonry is a fraternity of men who seek to improve themselves through their association with one another and their families. It promotes the basic precepts of Truth, Morality and Brotherly Love. It brings good men together for fellowship and the promotion of integrity and good citizenship. It encourages charitable activity, social awareness, and strives through its teachings to uplift its members and assist them in their efforts to attain high moral standards, to live decent lives and to conduct themselves to the benefit of others.

What makes a Freemason?



The foundation of every virtue. To be good Men and True.

2B1ASK1 - How do I become a Mason?

Who Can Join?

To qualify for membership every applicant must advocate his belief in the existence of a Supreme Being, be a male at least 18 years of age, be of good moral character, motivated to join for reasons unrelated to personal gain or profit, desirous of earning knowledge of the great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth, and willing to conform to the ancient usages and customs of the fraternity.

How To Join?

Our tradition was to wait for you to seek membership entirely of your own free will and accord. Today, however, we allow our members to selectively invite men of good character, who will be a credit to our Fraternity. But this doesn’t mean that you have to wait to be invited to join the Freemasons of Pennsylvania. Your interest is enough, if you meet the qualifications.

To start the process, you must first submit a petition for membership.

"Masonic labor is purely a labor of love. He who seeks to draw Masonic wages in gold and silver will be disappointed. The wages of a Mason are earned and paid in their dealings with one another; sympathy that begets sympathy, kindness begets kindness, helpfulness begets helpfulness, and these are the wages of a Mason."
~ Benjamin Franklin
