LSC91 believes in Ethical Standards
We don’t consider it proper to beg or ask you to become a member. Lodge Southern Cross accepts no man for membership unless he comes of his own free will and determination. We believe that men are first made Masons in their hearts, then trust that you will ask to join the brotherhood. In doing so we will take you, a good man in your community, and show you a philosophy that will assist you to become a better men.
To become a Freemason at Lodge Southern Cross there are a few requirements. You must:
- Be a man of at least 18 years of age;
- Be of good moral character (personal and professional) and law-abiding;
- Have a personal belief in a Supreme Being (the definition of a Supreme Being is a personal matter for each individual);
- Decide to become a Freemason of your own free will and accord without expectation of any material gain or benefits;
- Be loyal to Australia;
- Be dedicated to providing for your own family and community;
- Be committed to attending at least 2 meetings per month and a willingness to support and contribute to the lodge community and education programs;
- Have a sincere determination to conduct yourself in a manner that will earn the respect and trust of others;
- Possess a desire to help others through active community service and universal benevolence.
It is important to note that Benevolence, Charity and Relief are important principles in Freemasonry. Lodge Southern Cross is active in fund-raising for various worthy causes and we hope that you will contribute to these charitable causes after you have joined.
Lodge Southern Cross cannot help with legal or immigration problems. We do not accept members who join with an expectation of receiving financial aid from the lodge or other Freemasons.
Each man brings something different into the brotherhood, as different as the types of men that become Masons. But each shares a common core of beliefs and of dreams; each believes that, in a small way, by their actions they help make their world, their communities, and themselves better. If our ideals and goals interest you, we invite you to contact us and join us on the journey. Here are a few suggestions that might assist you:
- Ask a Lodge Southern Cross member that you know, or one who lives or works nearby, on how you can join.
- If you don’t know a Freemason then contact us and arrange to meet one of our Lodge Members in person. When you meet, ask him how you can become a Freemason.
