The History Of

Century Lodge No. 190

The first informal meeting of sojourning Masons to form a new lodge was held in January 1961 at the Masonic Temple at 829 10th Avenue. They formed the Greeley Masonic Club which met regularly until August 2, 1961, when they were issued a dispensation by the Grand Lodge of Colorado, AF&AM. A list of about 100 sojourning Masons who lived in the Greeley area was submitted with a note of many more in the area.

Occidental Lodge No. 20 acknowledged to Grand Lodge that these Masons were skilled Master Masons and were capable of starting a second lodge in Greeley.

Dispensation: August 2, 1961

Chartered: January 23, 1962

Becoming a Freemason FAQs

 

 

How does a man become a Mason?

An individual must apply of his own free will and accord since Masonry does not solicit members. A man interested in becoming a Mason should express that interest to a friend or acquaintance whom he believes to be a mason. He may also contact the secretary of a specific Lodge. He will then receive information leading to a petition process for the degrees of Masonry.

How does a man petition for the degrees of Masonry?

An individual must file a petition for the degrees of masonry by contacting the secretary of a lodge or by the aid of a Master Mason whom he knows or is acquainted with. Once an investigation committee has interviewed the candidate and he has been deemed worthy of initiation, he can then progress through the three degrees of ancient freemasonry. A candidate begins with the Entered Apprentice Degree, progresses to the Fellowcraft Degree, and then advances to the Master Mason Degree.

Does Masonry have any restrictions pertaining to race, creed, or color?

No. Racial or ethnic background or religious beliefs are not considered when an applicant seeks admission. Membership includes men of all races and religions.

Is there a religious test?

No. Masonry is not a religion. It only requires a belief in a Supreme Being.

Is Masonry political?

No. The discussion of partisan politics in a Masonic Lodge is forbidden and there is no support of candidates for political office. However, every Mason as an individual is encouraged to perform his civic duties supporting our democratic system.

What is meant by a "Lodge"?

It is the individual, local building of Freemasonry.

What does it cost to become a Mason?

Fees for the degrees and annual dues are set by each individual Lodge.

What philanthropies or charities does Masonry aid?

Masons through concordant organizations provide scholarships to colleges and universities without regard to race, creed, or color; contribute to blood banks; maintain hospitals for crippled children; maintain facilities for research in diseases of the eye, childhood aphasia, deafness; and many more.
