Is Masonry right for you?
Before you download or request a petition and return it to the lodge, there are a few questions you should ask yourself as well as some information you should know. The following is intended to assist in answering the question, “Is Masonry right for me?”
Try to find out if there is a good time for you to visit the lodge. Take this as an opportunity to meet some of the members and ask questions. Don’t be intimidated, they’ll be happy to see you. Most lodges have dinner before their regular stated meetings (meetings usually occur monthly) and guests are almost always welcome. In many areas more than one lodge may exist. Visit as many as you can, get a feeling for the lodges you visit and pick the one that best meets your needs.Visit a Lodge
Request a petition from a Mason or from the lodge you would like to join. Typically the Secretary of the Lodge can even email you a Petition. Your petition will require the signature of 5 Masons. Two of whom MUST be from Round Rock Lodge #227 and Three Masons from other recognized Lodges. If you don’t know any Masons, ask the lodge you’re petitioning for advice.Request a Petition
Turn in your completed petition to the lodge you would like to join. Ask if there are any fees that need to accompany the petition and bring a copy of your birth certificate. Your petition will be received by the Lodge and will be read during a Stated Meeting.Submit your Petition
