One of the most popular questions we get asked is, “How do I become a Freemason?”
Freemasonry is one of the oldest and largest fraternal societies in the world. It will give you a code of living in today’s community, based on good moral and ethical standards. It is an organisation of men who try to live by the principles of integrity and goodwill which unite them, regardless of colour, creed or worldly status. We are a non-profit making organisation that is involved in supporting charity and service to the community. It will give you a common interest where you can meet and enjoy the company of like-minded men from all walks of life.
If you have already made up your mind that you want to join Crescamus Lodge in Croydon and become a Freemason, you have already completed the first step, and hopefully, you have found enough information on this site to guide you this far.
Your Next Steps to Become a Freemason
Firstly, complete our membership enquiry form. Our Membership Secretary will then be in contact with you and arrange for you to visit our Lodge and meet its members. There you will be able to ask questions, and we can also give you a tour of our Masonic Centre.
We would expect you from time to time to meet us. For it can take up to one year before you become a member. But in the meantime, we would invite you to social events, to which you can bring friends and family. This will give you the chance to meet us and to make sure that you want to join us. When you are sure that you would like to join, you can complete an application form. When we receive this we would invite you to attend an interview with the Lodge Committee. Following this, we will then give you a date when you will be initiated.
Having read the above, if you are still interested in becoming a Freemason, the next step would be for you to contact us and then come and meet some of our members. We look forward to hearing from you and wish you good luck in your application!
