Joining Unity Masonic Lodge and becoming a Freemason is a six-step process. Its purpose is to acquaint your with the lodge and allow Lodge members to get acquianted with you. This step-wise approach addresses concerns you or your family might have about membership and it helps Lodge members learn about you before you submit a petition for membership.

The first step is to meet with a brother, generally for coffee, and hear the process explained in more detail, as well as what FreeMasonry both is and isn't.

Grand Lodge has created a video explaining the Six Steps to Becoming a Freemason. The video along with detailed information about each step of Grand Lodge's Six Steps program is at
