Rising Star Lodge, A.F. & A.M. in Stoughton, Massachusetts was instituted and recieved its Charter from the Grand Lodge of Masons
in Massachusetts in Boston on December 10th, 1799. In December of 2021, we began our 222th year of Freemasonry.
Rising Star Lodge has been serving the Stoughton regional area for more than 222 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.
