All you need do is to Ask.
For a Fraternity steeped in over four hundred years of tradition, you might think it is difficult to become a Mason. It is. There is one major hurdle each candidate must pass. They must ask...
Freemasonry in California accepts no one for membership unless they come of their own free will and accord, having already obtained a favorable impression of our Fraternity. There are few other requirements. You must be a man, over the age of eighteen, believe in a Supreme Being, live an ethical and moral life, and have a strong interest in the Fraternity and desire to participate in its charities and its activities. We believe that men are first made Masons in their hearts, then they ask to join our Fraternity. Freemasonry will take these men — good men in their communities — and help them become better men. Each man brings something different into the Fraternity, as different as the types of men that become Masons. But each shares a common core of beliefs and of dreams; each believes that, in a small way, by their actions they help make their world, their communities, and themselves better.
