How To Join

As the world’s oldest and largest fraternal organization, Freemasonry today is built on Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. Through fellowship, charity, education and leadership, Freemasons are making their lives – and their communities, stronger by the day. All are invited to visit a lodge near you to discover more.

The Grand Lodge of A.F. & A.M. of Maryland appreciates your interest in Freemasonry. By seeking this information you have taken the first step to becoming a member. It’s really that simple. To become a Mason you need only “ask”, meet the qualifications, and be accepted by a Lodge.

If you are interested in learning more about our fraternity, or inquiring about petitioning the fraternity, call or email us.

Phone: (410) 527-0600


When you email, be sure to include your name, address and phone number – this is necessary that we may have someone from a Lodge near you contact you.

The Office of the Grand Secretary is open for business from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM weekdays.
