Are you a woman interested in joining our Fraternity?
ALETHEIA, a women's Masonic Lodge in the European tradition, is open in Los Angeles for serious women who choose to use the ritual and symbolism of Freemasonry for spiritual growth and service to humanity. Located in the city of Los Angeles, we are one of three lodges of the Women's Grand Lodge of Belgium in the United States and the only one on the West coast.
OUR LODGE is dedicated to the study of symbolism and the exploration of philosophical truths. Under the auspices of the Women's Grand Lodge of Belgium, we offer the three degrees of the Blue Lodge to candidates wishing to work in these disciplines. WE BELIEVE that the ideals of Freemasonry, "liberty, equality, fraternity," are not limited by considerations of race, class, creed, sex, nationality, or any of the other classifications so often used to oppress one or another group of humanity. We therefore accept for initiation any woman aged 25 years or older who can show that she is "honest and upright, free and of good report."
To become a member, several criteria must be met. You must be willing to:
adhere to the principles of liberty, equality and fraternity
be a woman of good character
be at least 25 years of age.
having completed 3 interviews
pay the fees involved (Initiation fee is $250, Annual Dues are $240)
You must be willing and able to attend meetings every 3rd Saturday of each month for the first three years. Obviously there will be exceptions, but you should consider this commitment deeply in regards to your work or school requirements, your family duties and expectations, and so on.
Contact us by e-mail. Ask for a "Request for Initiation" form. In addition to the completed form, you will also be required to send a recent picture of yourself and a short (2 or 3 pages) biography covering what you consider to be the major events of your life thus far and a statement (1 paragraph to 1 page) telling us why you wish to become a Freemason.
After a thorough examination of your application, you may be accepted for the initiation process into our Lodge.
