It Begins with a Question
Joining a Lodge is a multi-step process explained below. An applicant must be a man, at least 18 years old, believe in a Supreme Being, be a resident of Iowa, and be of good character. Despite all of this, the first step is easy–just ask.
Process for Joining
- Request more information. Reach out to us using the form below. Join us for dinner before a meeting or at El Kahir Shrine on grill night. Spend some time and get to know us. Masonry is a fraternity–spend the time to make sure we are what you expect, you are a good fit for us, and us you. If you like what you see, ask for a petition (application) from a Mason or download a petition here. Complete the petition and return it to him.
- Your petition will be read at the next Stated Meeting, an investigation committee assigned, and a personal visit scheduled. During this visit the committee will find out why you want to join, answer any questions you have, hopefully meet your family, and work with you to determine is Freemasonry (and Marion #6) are right for you.
- The committee will report back to the Lodge at the following Stated Meeting and vote on the petition. All petitions must be accepted by a unanimous vote. If accepted, the Lodge will contact you and schedule the Entered Apprentice Degree.
