Becoming a Member

Interested in membership in the Masons?

To become a member of this ancient and honorable Fraternity, a man must apply of his own free will and accord and with an open heart. Invitations are not issued to prospective members, nor are members solicited. If a person is interested in joining, he should ask a Masonic friend for more information or contact the Grand Lodge of Virginia.

The requirements for membership are:

  • that you be a man, one of good character and reputation
  • that you be a peaceful citizen, and one who guards against intemperance and excess
  • that you are one who respects genuine brotherhood and general good of society
  • Freemasonry requires a belief in a Supreme Being.
