Subject: Re: Creating a Lodge
To form a lodge, you would have to already be a Mason. If a group of
Masons live in an area where there are no lodges, they can petition the
Grand Lodge of their state for a charter as a lodge. If they live in a
state without a Grand Lodge, they can ask the Grand Lodge of another
state to give them a charter. It is a long and complex process.
The first step is to become a Mason. You would need to join a lodge
in some other country, perhaps someplace where you travel frequently and
At present, the situation for Masonry is complicated throughout all
of the former Yugoslavia. Some of the new states have a new Grand
Lodge, or at least a provisional one, while others do not. You could
review the list of Links at my website, although I am not sure it is
up-to-date in that regard.
Also, there are well-established Grand Lodges in much of the rest of
Europe. To join a foreign lodge, you would have to travel regularly to
that city, or perhaps even reside there for awhile.
Once you are a Mason, you could pursue your goal of chartering a new
lodge. Please keep me informed of your progress.
