Where can I get information on masonic rituals?

Freemasons form a discreet society, thus ritual details are not published for profane readers. However, there are plenty of official publication, signed by the Freemasonry worth reading. For Polish-speaking readers and for those who express particular interest in freemasonry in Poland we suggest works from L. Haas, T. Cegielski, N. Wojtowicz, K. Wojciechowski and L. Chajn. You can also follow our links.

How can one become a mason?

The answer is quite complicated. There are two ways of joining the Freemasonry. Firstly, you can be invited by a Brother in the Craft. This is the usual way. Such an invitation is a result of a evaluation of your opinions, behavior and beliefs. There is also another way: you can applay by yourself. In this case you probably need to face a longer time of waiting, when Freemasons discuss your application and try to apprise your attitude to the Craft and its values.
