Worshipful Raymond Williams Welcomes You to Rising Star Lodge!



Rising Star Lodge has been serving the Stoughton regional area for more than 220 years,
taking in men of all races, nationalities, creeds, and religions to help them
find their true potential and make them better men.

Rising Star Lodge's regularly scheduled meetings are the 2nd Thursday of each month (unless otherwise communicated).
We also meet regularly for rehearsals, as well as for special events,
such as charity events, blood drives, open houses, and Masonic instruction.
We also enjoy getting together in fellowship to enjoy a movie, watch sports,
and help a Brother with a home project.

Most importantly, we gather together to practice what we are taught in Freemasonry
to build strong bonds amongst each other, that we can then take out into the world and share with all Mankind.

If you are interested in learning more about Freemasonry in general,
and more specifically Rising Star Lodge, please contact us for more information
and we'd be glad to set up a time to talk to you.

Masons know from our collective experiences that being a member of the Craft is unique and rewarding.

All men of legal age whom believe in a Higher Power are welcome to join.

We look forward to meeting you.

The Star is Rising here in Stoughton!
