Alba EmblemAlba Lodge No. 222


Freemasonry is often defined as a system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. The system must be practiced in order to be understood. It is arguably impossible to explain what it means to be a Mason unless one has had the experience of being one.

The Grand Lodge, F.A.A.M., of the District of Columbia has over 40 lodges to choose from, with one of the widest range of Masonic ritual options in the world. Lodge Alba is but one of them. You should feel free to learn about any or all of these lodges when making a choice to petition a lodge.

Alba takes more time than most lodges with the process of making someone a Mason. The candidate’s role in that process is not passive, and considerable work will be required by a candidate to complete the process of membership. That said, becoming a brother of Alba is one of those experiences that, if you pursue it, and are accepted by the lodge, will be rewarding to you in a way that you can only understand when you have chosen to do it.
