    Hello my name is Justin I am 26 yrs of age, currently looking to join the brotherhood of the prince-hall free masonry. If anyone can help in this endeavor as I have always loved everything the brotherhood stands for in all aspects of the descriptions I've researched, it would be so greatly appreciated. Guidance is what I am looking for, no handouts just guidance.

    Thank you so much for responding I can't express how excited I truly am at this opportunity even showing the slightest bit of possible occurrence! I live in Aurora, Colorado. Is there any way you could point me in the right direction of what I need to do to join?

    Hello, I am a possible candidate for Lodge #344.

    This is Alexis Rizo Jr, I am ecstatic to start my journey into Freemasonry. I recently attended a Masonic dinner, and right away several Brothers greeted me with love and respect as I was referred by Shriner Ted Adams. This same night before leaving I finally met my mentor that Ted Adams had suggested he'd help me seek the Light that I had been searching for. Bill who is a Shriner and also part of The Order Of Knights Templar is now my mentor, we spoke briefly about what made me want to become a mason and a Shriner. We then went over to the Secretary and I handed over my petition, my background check paper work along with the money to get started. Bill then told me they would have a meeting and I said my goodbyes and went home. Sense that night I have not stopped studying Knowledge that I have found on Grand Lodge websites such as The Entered Apprentice Handbook, The Fellow Craft Handbook, And the Master Mason Handbook, My studying is to seek the light, the true symbolism of what I am reading and not just learning but understand and absorb it then apply it to my daily life. As i read threw these handbooks I fill my notebooks with tons of notes but as I fill my brain with all this knowledge I pray to the Universal Creator to give me Wisdom and Understanding to receive and interpret this knowledge in the way it was intended. As of now I am still waiting on someone to get back to me about my background check (which I'm not at all worried about) and hopefully every member will see me as a Man of good moral and grant me the privilege to become a member at the Masonic Lodge #344. I realize I am young but I am focused and have great ambition to become a Mason and elevate through degrees. I recently came across a post about Shriners and that in some states you are expelled if you have anything to do with being a Shriner? Maybe you can expand this in deeper thought? Thank you all for your time.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Alexis Rizo Jr.

    Possible Candidate for Lodge #344

    A question. Im from brazil and here.to become a masonic member a regular brother look into the society for a future member and the others brothers make a investigation about the person. Looking this post i saw if you want to become a member in a logde in usa you just ask about it. Im right?

    (Sorry about my english)

    To be honest my friend I just took a leap of faith and knew that the I would somehow be given the information needed to finally take the right steps towards my journey. I feel it would/should be the same for any man that is looking to become a brother of this amazing fraternity! I say do as I did and take a leap of faith do what you feel in ur heart and soul is the right thing to get started on your journey faith will lead you in the right direction I guarantee it!

    In the US there are no invitations so a man has to ask to start the process. An investigation is a step later in the process.
