How To Become A Shriner

If you hold the title of Master Mason in Freemasonry, you qualify and are invited to join the Shriners.

In order to become a Shriner you must ask a current Shriner to support and sponsor your application. This site makes that process easier by pairing you with a virtual mentor who can answer all of your questions, guide you through the petition process and help you get to know members of your local temple.

If you are not a Freemason, you must pursue that first. Ask for a virtual mentor on this site who will assist you on that journey. Also see the Roadmap section and click on Freemason for details on that process. Once you are a Master Mason you will then be eligible to petition to become a Shriner. See Roadmap section and click on Shriner for details. Your virtual mentor will assist you with every step along the way.

There are many benefits to becoming a Shriner.

  • Membership in a well-known fraternal organization recognized for its social and philanthropic activities.
  • Opportunity to develop lasting relationships with like minded men from all over the world
  • Engage in social activities and events that are available for the entire family. Participate in many special interest groups with Shriners that allow like minded men to enjoy a little high-spirited fun. Motorcycles, trap shooting, parades, golf, flying and sports cars are all examples of these types of groups
  • The privilege of supporting the "world’s greatest philanthropy,” Shriners Hospitals for Children®, offers Shriners many opportunities to find personal fulfillment and satisfaction
