The Initiation Process

The 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, often referred to as appendant bodies.  The process can take three to six months.  It is very rewarding and will help you to get to know the brothers at Humboldt #42.

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. These are only available to you after becoming a Master Mason.
