It is not unusual for new members to feel confused and nervous in the early days….we have all been through the same experience.
To help overcome this and make new members comfortable all lodges are encouraged to have a Lodge Mentor that new members can go to and ask questions and get support if it is needed. This maybe in practising for your first piece of work in the lodge or proposing a toast. There is no question you can ask that has not been asked before. Your proposer into the lodge would also be expected to keep in touch with you and make sure that you are comfortable within the lodge.
Our aim is for you to enjoy masonry and to build your confidence so that one day you can help a new member.
