About Me

What is Freemasonry? Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that arose from obscure origins in the late 16th to early 17th century. Freemasonry now exists in various forms all over the world, with a membership estimated at around six million.

Basic Membership Requirements:

  • Be a man at least 18 years of age
  • Be of good moral character
  • A Belief in God
  • Ask to join
  • Resident of Indiana (Minimum 6 months)


Steps to Membership:

You will need to complete a membership petition and enter Madison lodge #44 and an initiation fee of $150 will need to  accompany the petition. Someone from the lodge will contact you for an interview. Your wife, friend, or parent is encouraged to attend this interview. The lodge at its next meeting will vote on your petition.

Your references will be contacted and asked to answer some general questions. This process is just so we can get a better understanding of the candidate and insure they meet our original requirements.

If your petition is approved you are on your way to becoming an Indiana Freemason.

Find more information on joining at the Indiana Grand Lodge Website.
