Becoming a Shriner
Becoming a Shriner
Al Kader Shriners wants you to join us in our fun with a purpose and the world’s greatest philanthropy: Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Please take a few minutes and view the following videos where you will hear first hand about being a Mason and Shriner.
The Shriners Invite You to Join!
To qualify, you must be a Master Mason in good standing and hold a current blue lodge dues card. It is no longer a requirement that you be a 32nd Degree Scottish Rite or York Rite Mason before becoming a Shriner (however, we strongly encourage you to join one or both of the rites).
If you are not a Freemason, you must pursue that first. The Grand Lodge of Oregon and BeAShrinerNow.com have resources on their websites to help you on this journey. Once you are a Master Mason you will then be eligible to petition to become a Shriner.
Directions for Membership:
Complete the membership petition form, and obtain the signatures of two Al Kader Shriners (if you do not know a Shriner, we can provide nobles to sign your application). Include a copy of your current blue lodge dues card and mail with your membership dues check to:
Al Kader Shrine Center
25100 SW Parkway Avenue
Wilsonville, Oregon 97070-9600
You will then be notified of the next ceremonial* event.
However, we want you to participate now. Once we receive your application, we will be contacting you to provide information on our many units and clubs. You and your lady will be invited to our next social event.
* This event is usually held at the Shriners center in Wilsonville. It does not require any memory work on your part. The ceremonial gives you (and your lady) the opportunity to tour the Portland Shriners Hospital and witness the beautiful ritualistic section and ceremonies. You will then undergo a Fezzing Ceremony and become a Noble of Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. No hazing is allowed in any of our ceremonies.
