Petition for Membership at Manchester!

All you need to do is Ask. The best and fastest way to apply to a lodge of our Fraternity is to ask a Mason about Freemasonry. If you would like to request an application to petition Manchester Lodge all you have to do is fill in and submit the form below and meet the following requirements to start your journey in Freemasonry.

  • Be a man, 18+ years of age.
  • Believe in a Supreme Being.
  • Live an ethical and moral life.
  • Have a strong interest in the Fraternity and desire to participate in its charities and its activities.

We believe that men are first made Masons in their hearts, then they ask to join our Fraternity. Freemasonry will take these men — good men in their communities — and help them become better men. Each man brings something different into the Fraternity, as different as the types of men that become Masons. But each shares a common core of beliefs and of dreams; each believes that, in a small way, by their actions they help make their world, their communities, and themselves better. Once we receive your request we will contact you, send you an application from the lodge that you wish to petition. You must fill out this application and return it. A committee from the lodge will meet with you. Your application will be voted upon. If you receive a favorable ballot, you will be notified when the degrees will begin. You and the other candidates must learn a portion of what will be taking place during your degrees.

All that is essential for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. -Edmund Burke
