If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a Freemason
in Durham, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org,
giving a phone number on which you would be happy to receive a call.
Someone will get in touch with you to have a chat and answer
any questions you may have. This could take place via e-mail
If you are still interested, a private meeting would be arranged.
Should you then wish to take things further, someone else will
also wish to meet you and they would ultimately be your supporters
in your application. One of these meetings would probably be at
your home, and they may wish to speak to some friends or family
members as well. There is nothing to be concerned about, these meetings
are to help your sponsors get to know you and feel able to propose
you with confidence. It will allow you to get to know them too!
They then arrange an interview with senior members of the Lodge
who will ask you probably much the same questions. All being well,
your name will go before the brethren at the next Lodge meeting
for your candidature to be approved.
If approved, a slot will be found in the programme for your
initiation ceremony. Your supporters will explain what is involved
and reassure you if you have heard any alarming reports as to
what that may entail. Remember, Freemasonry is about brotherly
love, truth, and relief.
