    Hello brothers,
    So I'm Active Army and just relocated to Kentucky. What do I need to know and/or do to get excepted to a new lodge. I am in good standing with my old lodge with no issues.

    Also, I was caught off gaurd by a fellow brother that asked me "do you seek more light?". I replied with "no brother, I have been vouched for and proper prepared to recieve light". Is there something I'm missing here?

    Fraternally,
    Brother Adam

    Hi,

    I can’t speak to the question and response you mention, but generally speaking, any lodge secretary should be able to answer your questions about the process of joining their lodge as a Master Mason from another grand jurisdiction. (I’m assuming based on your wording that you relocated from a different state and therefore a different jurisdiction.)

    It sounds like you’ve already visited a local lodge there in Kentucky where you are. Next time you visit, I would recommend asking the secretary about the process of becoming a member. If he doesn’t know, he’ll know whom to find out from.

    If, by being accepted, you mean accepted as a regular mason, that should be no problem with KY masons. There are differences in masonic cultures, language, phrasing.

    If, by being accepted, you mean affiliating with a lodge, it would be my recommendation you consider only visiting. Once you finish active duty, you can look at where you wish to affiliate.
