You will then complete a membership application for a lodge in your city There are three Massachusetts Lodges in Panama: Sojourners Lodge in Colon, Ancon Lodge in Panama City and Gatun Lodge in Panama City.

An initiation fee accompanies the application. Within a few days someone from the lodge will contact you for an interview. Your wife, friend, or parent is encouraged to attend this interview with you. The lodge at its next meeting will vote on your application. If accepted you are on your way to becoming a Mason.

The lodge performs 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 or participate in the many activities and charities described elsewhere.
