Anyone meeting the following primary requirements may petition a Massachusetts lodge for membership:
- You are an adult male (18 or older) of good character.
- You believe in a Supreme Being – no atheist or agnostic can become a Mason – but we are not concerned with theological distinctions or your particular religious beliefs.
- You are interested in becoming a Mason because you hold a favorable opinion of our institution; your decision to apply is based on your own free will and accord (i.e. no one compelled you to join).
