  • Why Join

    Every man has his own reason for wanting to be a part of the greatest fraternity in the world. Regardless of your reason, you will benefit from membership, because Freemasonry makes good men better. Look around www.phgltn.org and you will find much about our history, purpose, and current day programs of education, character development and charity.

    To take the next step, you need to complete a background check authorization form and submit your petition to a Lodge. If you know a Mason, ask him to help you find the right Lodge for you. If you don’t know anything about your nearest Lodge, use this form and tell us about yourself so we can get a local lodge to contact you.
