Not there yet? A person seeking admission into Freemasonry of Ohio must be a man who is nineteen years of age or older and of good moral character. Has resided in Ohio for at least one year, and who comes well recommended. He must profess his belief in the existence of a Supreme Being, thus no atheist or agnostic can become a Freemason.


How can I become a Freemason?

An important characteristic of the Masonic Fraternity is that it never solicits members. In order to join the fraternity of Freemasonry, you must ask a member how you may join. You will not be asked to join. This is done to ensure that you come into Freemasonry of your own free will; without expectation of material gain. To begin you may use the information on the Contact Us page.


What kind of time commitment is necessary?

Masonry is not meant to interfere with your responsibilities to God, your family or your job. You can be as active or passive as you wish. We encourage you to attend our meetings, but this is not required. You get out of Freemasonry only what you are willing to put into it.
