Become a Shriner


Building friendships that will last a lifetime

Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship, and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief for others, and the truth. An organization of men who are dedicated to brotherhood, and the compassion and service to others. It's obviously, spiritually, more than just a fraternity - with nearly 200 Temples (chapters) in seven countries, and thousands of clubs around the world.

Oasis Shriners are very proud members of Shriners International, which is a governing body for all Shriners throughout the entire world. Shriners International provides the comprehensive and hands-on leadership that allows each individual Shriner's location to focus on the philanthropy for others, maintaining the proud traditions, and also the fun in doing so, all while keeping the standards of Shriners everywhere and making the necessary changes to allow Shriners, and also the Shriners Children's™ to remain fully operational in helping others in need, in this ever changing world.

To become a Shriner...all you have to do is just ask

In order to become a Shriner you must ask a current Shriner to support and sponsor your application. This site makes that process easier by pairing you with a virtual mentor who can answer all of your questions, guide you through the petition process, and help you get to know members and future friends of your local Shrine Temple. We are by your side every step of the way.

Some Frequently Asked FUN Questions

What significance does the emblem play?
Just like the Mercedes-Benz is known for it's 3-pointed star symbol, the Shriners fraternity is known for its Crescent, or "Jewel of the Order". Carrying on the Near East theme, the emblem is composed of the claws of a tiger, united in the middle with the head of the sphinx. One the back of the emblem are a pyramid, urn, and star. Additionally, the emblem bears the motto "Robur et Furor", which means "Strength and Fury".

Just as Mercedes' star represents something - domination of land, sea, and air... So does the Shriners emblem. The scimitar stands for the backbone of the fraternity - its members. The two claws are for the Shriners fraternity and its philanthropy, the Shriners Children's™. The sphinx is representative of the governing body of the Shriners, while the star hanging beneath the thousands of children helped by the philanthropy every year.
