  • Title: Initiation Process | Becoming a Mason | Indiana Freemasons
    Descriptive info: Initiation Process.. The Work of Initiation.. Your lodge will perform three degrees (initiation ceremonies) for your education and enjoyment.. These ceremonies are very dignified and inspirational.. At no time will horseplay or indignities enter into the program.. These degrees are very solemn and Masons take the task of making Masons very seriously.. After becoming a Master Mason (the third degree of the lodge) you may seek membership in the many other Masonic related groups these are often referred to as appendant bodies.. This process of going through the degrees can be done traditionally in your own lodge with smaller groups that include other candidates entering your lodge just like you.. This process would start with the Entered Apprentice degree and then move to the Fellow Craft degree and conclude with the Master Mason degree.. This traditional process could take 3-6 months based on the  ...   of modern life.. In this situation the Entered Apprentice Degree, Fellow Craft Degree and Master Mason Degree are all taught in one day.. You will be watching the process as an exemplar is used to represent all in the room rather than in the traditional format where you are a participant in your own degrees.. Whichever path you choose to becoming a Master Mason when it is complete you will be a Master Mason and can proudly consider yourself a member of the world’s oldest fraternal organization.. There are many more degrees you can take and several different groups you may choose to get involved with as you grow in the fraternity..

  • Title: Additional Memberships | Becoming a Mason | Indiana Freemasons
    Descriptive info: Additional Memberships.. Organizations Available To A Master Mason.. In addition to basic "Craft" Masonry, there are Appendant groups that are now available to you as a Master Mason.. Freemasons unite with each other and their families in bonds of friendship and mutual assistance.. A mutual tie that in this world is greatly needed.. As a Master Mason you should be interested in Masonic advancement, not that you will thereby become a better Mason, but that you may have a better understanding of the Masonic System, additional Masonic contacts, and an explanation of that great symbolism upon which the Fraternity has built a glorious superstructure.. We, your Brethren, know the pleasure and gratification you felt when you completed your first three steps in Freemasonry and became numbered among those thousands of men the world over who stand for Brotherly Love, Religious Freedom, and Peace and Happiness for men of all nations and of all creeds.. The York Rite.. Masonic history, both real and legendary, has centered around the search for the true Word.. The lessons taught in the Lodge leave the initiate with the sense of having almost, but not quite, discovered the much-to-be-desired object of his quest.. The first steps to take along this road should naturally tie in closely and enrich the degrees you have already received.. Such are the Chapter and Council degrees and the Orders of the Commandery in the York Rite.. These Masonic degrees are not merely degrees, but are exemplifications of homely virtues often neglected and lost sight of in the busy lives we now live.. See the links below for more information.. Indiana Royal Arch Masons.. Indiana Cryptic Masons.. Indiana Knights Templar.. The Scottish Rite.. The Scottish Rite seeks to strengthen the community and believes that each man should act in civil life according to his individual judgment and the dictates of his conscience.. A member of the Scottish Rite seeks to:.. Exalt the dignity of every person, the human side of his daily activities, and the maximum service to humanity.. Aid mankind's search in God's universe for identity, for development  ...   relief and truth.. There are approximately 375,000 members from 191 temples (chapters) in the U.. S.. , Canada, Mexico and the Republic of Panama.. Shriners International support Shriners Hospitals for Children, a one-of-a-kind international health care system of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing specialty pediatric care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs.. Since 1922, Shriners Hospitals for Children have significantly improved the lives of more than 865,000 children.. The Shrine was originally founded in New York City in 1872.. Local Shrine Centers:.. Murat (Indianapolis).. Mizpah (Ft.. Wayne).. Hadi (Evansville).. Zorah (Terre Haute).. Orak (Michigan City).. Shriners Internationa.. l.. The Grotto.. The man who comes to the Grotto had his Masonic origin in a Symbolic Lodge.. Where he was taught to revere the name of God and pray for guidance.. He came on through the degrees where his knowledge of the dignity of Masonry was expanded and the Grotto was provided for him as a place where he might join with his brothers in letting human instincts for fun, pleasure and amusement prevail.. The Grotto was not and is not a place for Masons to exercise practices that would not be tolerated in the Masonic bodies, or which are taboo among gentleman.. The Grotto stands for all of Masonry and wholesomeness in life.. It stands for letting in the sunshine on discouragement, grief and woe and it stands for substituting hope for despair at all times.. Without the formalities that attend the Degrees in Masonry, it brings members in close fraternal touch and it breeds confidence among wearers of the Fez.. The Grotto has always been made up of men from all walks of life …men you are proud to know …men who travel by preference along the sunny side of the street and who play a fair game all the time.. Membership in the Grotto gives a man the right to wear its emblem and to participate in its good work, as well as enjoy all its pleasures.. For more information click on the link below..
