The Application Process

No one will ask you to join Masonry, so that you may ask for yourself. Your Application for the Degrees must be recommended by two Master Masons who are members of the Lodge you wish to join. If you don’t know any members, a Stated Meeting dinner is the best way to meet many at once. Our Stated Meetings are the first Tuesday of each month.

Your application will be read at a Stated Meeting of our Lodge. If accepted, a committee will be appointed to meet you and discuss your application. These interviews are confidential, reported only to the Lodge Master.

At a subsequent Stated Meeting, the Master will announce the results of the investigating committee’s reports, and a secret ballot will be taken. The ballot must be unanimously favorable. The Secretary will notify you of the outcome, and if elected, the Master will schedule your First Degree.

Fees & Dues

Our application fees of $244 cover instructional materials, and include contributions to foundations like the Masonic Homes of California.

Masons pay annual Lodge dues. Ours are currently $111.50.
