How to Join

Joining Delhi Hills Lodge and Becoming a Master Mason

Joining Delhi Hills Masonic Lodge is an opportunity for qualified men to become members of the world’s oldest, largest, and best known fraternal organization all within a local and personal Lodge. The process of becoming a member is divided into stages marked by three separate ceremonies, the symbolism of which is intended to strengthen a man’s commitment to his Faith, his family, and his community.

Master Masons are men from a variety of ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds who share a belief in the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God, work to improve themselves and their communities, and are an asset to all who know them. Membership in a Masonic Lodge is an honor that says a great deal about the character and personal integrity of a man.
