    Good Evening Brethren,

    I am looking to become a Freemason, and continue my education within the craft. I am eager to learn, and would be very gracious for the opportunity to acquire a mentor within Freemasonry. I would love to be apart of the organization.

    In the US the way to go is show up at a local lodge about an hour before the scheduled meeting. Introduce yourself and ask how to become a meeting. Plan on attending every month from there on. It will take several months before the Brothers know you well enough to sign your petition.

    As we generally never do invitations never, ever, wait even one second on any sort of response to inquiries. Showing up in person is the only option.

    Hi Dylan. "Brethren" is a collective way Freemasons address each other, so it's not yet appropriate for you to use the term.

    Doug's advice is good, but perhaps someone could supply you the link to the regular Grand Lodge of NY to also reach out to them ?

    Thanks Doug - www.nymasons.org & http://princehallny.org/ - I thought better to ask someone more local but using the UGLE site is a good idea..

    Dylan, I'm a transplanted Long Islander. If you need assistance with finding a lodge in your area, let me know. I would be happy to assist you. Good luck!.
