Hello, and welcome.
First…a bit of advice.  Generally, Masons call each OTHER “brother”, but non-Masons do not refer to us as “brother”.  Not a big deal though.

I believe you’re trying to find out how to join Freemasonry.  The only way to do this is to contact a lodge near you and tell them that you are interested in joining.  You should contact the Grand Lodge of Albania, and they can point you in the right direction.

Or am I misunderstanding?  Are you looking to JOIN Freemasonry, or are you a new Mason looking for further information?

No, probably not.  If your family doesn’t want you to join, I would not recommend it.  You don’t need that kind of headache and Freemasonry will become a burden for you.  Also, it would be unfair of you to put him in that position.

Mac,

The priorities of a Mason should be his faith and family, his vocation, and a distant third, Masonry. If your family doesn’t approve of your membership then you simply should not join.

A brother in my lodge was Raised (became a Master Mason) in my lodge. He later found out that his mother had a strong objection he did the right thing and left the lodge. Later, His mother noticed a Masonic ring worn by her new Minister. After heartfelt discussions where the Minister explained there was no conflict between his Faith and the Fraternity, the mother relented and allowed the brother to return to the lodge. We are glad to have him back and grateful to our brother the minister.

Perhaps your family should meet with a Mason they can trust and respect before you attempt to join us.
