How Can I Become a Freemason?
Just ask! Yes, it’s really that simple. As a rule Freemasons do not recruit for new members, so in order to join our fraternity you must first ask. It helps to know active Masons in good standing, but it is not strictly necessary.

How Can I Join Your Lodge?
If you are interested in joining our lodge, please download and complete our petition for membership and bring it to the lodge on the Second Saturday of every month at 4pm Except in July and August. Our address is:

Please note that per the Grand Lodge of New Jersey there are three requirements for anyone wishing to join a Masonic lodge in this state:

  • You must be a man of at least 18 years of age.
