What is it? How do you get one? What's the process? What makes you ineligible to get one?
Thank you for all of the info brother.No, a Masonic Passport is a record book, that you buy from a retailer. Then when you visit a lodge, you get the secretary of the lodge you visit, to make a notation in the "diary" section. A masonic passport is a "keepsake" only, and it is not the same as a LOGS.
I have been a Mason for 33 yrs, and I have never needed a LOGS. If you wish to visit a lodge in the USA or Canada, all you need is your paid up dues card from a regular lodge. That is your "ticket" to visit lodges.
I did it by attending lodge in NM with my current dues card. Then after awhile turned in a petition for affiliationYour signature states that you belong to Lodges in two different jurisdictions. How were you able to accomplish that without a LOGS?
For a member of a GLoTX Lodge to do that would require him to send his petition for affiliation, along with a Certificate of Good Standing signed by his WM and sealed by his Secretary, to his Grand Secretary, who would forward it to the Grand Secretary of the other Grand Lodge, who would forward it to their Lodge. Once that Lodge approved the petition, they would send that information to their Grand Secretary, who would forward it to the GLoTX Grand Secretary, who would send it back to the Brother's Lodge. Unwieldy, but proper Masonic protocol.I did it by attending lodge in NM with my current dues card. Then after awhile turned in a petition for affiliation
So if i got stationed in TX i couldnt show up with a current dues card from both NM and OR and attend lodge a few times then turn in a petition for affiliation? Cause in Oregon we have plastic dues cards with oyr member number on them and the GL website has a spot to search for those numbers and it will tell u if that brother is in good standing or not

You could visit all you wanted, but to affiliate you would need to follow the procedure I outlined above.So if i got stationed in TX i couldnt show up with a current dues card from both NM and OR and attend lodge a few times then turn in a petition for affiliation?
