    Find a regular and recognized lodge in your area, find out when they meet, show before or after the meeting and go from there. I've heard many brethren on here say to shop around and see which lodge is best for you. I stress though, make sure the lodge you visit isn't clandestine. Your options are either the mainstream GRand Lodge of California or the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of California. Good luck.

    • Hey Lee, I'm from Niagara Falls Ontario, it's good to see another fellow Canadian brother here. The questions they ask are of your character. Usually it's a few months from when you meet to when your initiated. You have to be balloted on etc. Most lodges meet only once a month.

    Ok thanks, sucks for the waiting period...generally an eager person when it comes to learning, but like they say patience is a virtue : P

    • they also ask if you believe in a supreme being (which I'm sure you're aware) they may ask if you've discussed Masonry with your wife or significant other.

    Eagerness is good. It's my opinion that Masonry needs more eager brethren. My advice is to get involved with your lodge once your able to ASAP.
