How To Join The Pyramid Shrine
Chapter of Shriners International

Shriners International, formerly known as
The Ancient Arabic Order of The Nobles of The Mystic Shrine (AAONMS),
is an honorable fraternity focused squarely on the tenets of
Fun and Philanthropy.

Though a separate organization, Shriners International is firmly rooted in, and closely affiliated with, the world of Freemasonry. In order to join, one must first hold the title of Master Mason.

Below we've broken the process down  and provided some links and educational resources to aid you inquiries.
