First, you are not yet a Mason and have not earned the privilege of calling us your brothers. Second, you cannot expect instant responses from a volunteer in an organization that meets once each month. Have you tried to go to one of their meetings an hour before it would start and introduce yourself?

I suspect that no one has made any promises to you as by your own words you haven’t made contact yet.

Try again but please bear in mind that they are under absolutely no obligation to engage with you.

Oh boy…..we see this all the time, especially in Africa.  You’ve been tricked.  You cannot just “register” and become a Mason.  Joining Freemasonry is a long process of getting to personally know lodge members, in person, and then applying and being interviewed, the a lodge of Masons needs to vote to accept you, and THEN you need to attend meetings to receive your initiation through the three degrees, which can take up to three years to complete.  Have you done any of this?  My guess is you have not.

No, my friend, it appears you have been tricked.  They probably asked you to pay money as well, right?  This is theft.  Fraud.  And it is sadly something that happens quite often in your part of the world.

Sorry, but you are not a Freemason.

Can you also please share the email address of this Lebanese Lodge?

You can send it privately if you want some privacy!

Though, as a Person from Kenya, visiting Lebanon only to get the degrees, I am pretty sure you were caught by one of the 60 clandestine GL in a small country like Lebanon.
We have no regular GL in Lebanon. The only regular Lodges in Lebanon are working under the Jurisdiction of:
- The GL of NY,
- The GL of Scotland,
- The GL of Washington DC.
(As per my understanding).

Hold on,

my bad.

First: I did not notice that you are a lady as I did not look at the name and signature. As previously mentioned, woman is not allowed to join the mainstream of Freemasonry. There are sister bodies that are for ladies (example: Order of the Eastern Star); however, the mainstream Freemasonry is not allowing women to join freemasonry. (Unless it is a mixed clandestine Lodge and not regular/recognized).

Second: I don’t know the email address you sent.

Regards,
Bro H.

Going to be blunt with you my friend. I’ve emailed the general fraternity and I think how it goes is that they contact the local lodge or something like that about it. It’s been over a month no reply. As well over a few weeks ago I contacted the lodge of the area that I’m moving to simply asking for the next open house. Haven’t gotten a reply yet.

Yes as one of the replies was they are in no way shape or form obligated to engage with you let alone reply.

They may not be interested in you.

At least in my case your circumstance may be different.
My suggestion is to pursue other things and just waive freemasonry aside and focus on improving faults in your life then there may be a chance in the far future?

I’m not a mason so yea, and I’m speaking merely on opinion and my own perspective.

Edit: Yea reading all the responses and all that of course it’s a fraternity so that speaks for itself and it still validates the first portion. However it invalidates my last statement on the matter of the chance of joining.

I took a look at your profile and found nothing. Where are you located? Are you male? Do you believe in the Supreme Being? Do you have a good reputation? These are the questions you need to answer before anyone can even begin to know if you are qualified to become a Mason. If you are in Massachusetts, I’d be happy to help once you have answered the questions I asked.
