How to join Scottish Rite
Freemasonry is a fraternity whose membership must be sought by the candidate. It does not actively recruit candidates. In order to become a Mason, you must ask another Mason.
To become a Scottish Rite Mason, you must first be a Master Mason.
If you are an Illinois resident and a Master Mason seeking to join our ranks, you may download a petition for membership below.
