If you are a Master Mason of a Lodge recognized and in amity with the Conference of Grand Masters of North America, you can petition to become a Noble of the Mystic Shrine. Just obtain the petition for initiation and membership from your local Shrine Center or feel free to ask a local Shrine as they would be happy to help you.
If you hold the Master Mason degree in Freemasonry, you qualify and are invited to join the Shrine. A man receives the three degrees known as the Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft and Master Mason Degrees in the Masonic Lodge, often known as the Symbolic Lodge, Blue Lodge or Craft Lodge. In Freemasonry, there is no higher degree than that of Master Mason (the Third Degree).
In many parts of North America, Masonry does not solicit members. In these areas, a man must seek admission of his own free will - he must ask. In some areas, Masons are permitted to solicit new members. But, in all cases, a man interested in becoming a Mason, should consult a friend whom he believes to be a Freemason to secure his good counsel and recommendation concerning this important undertaking.
