Welcome to the home page of Alpha Lodge, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, located at 404 Concord Street in Framingham, Massachusetts.

We meet every 4th Monday, September through June

As a lodge of Freemasons, we are part of the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world, an organization that is dedicated to the basic tenets of friendship, morality, and brotherly love. Alpha Lodge was formally constituted on November 13, 1876, and has been quietly serving the Framingham community since its inception. Part of our mission, and every Masonic lodge's mission, is to "make good men better" to serve our families, fraternity, faith, communities, and country. Alpha Lodge operates by charter under the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Massachusetts.


The first step to becoming a Freemason, especially if you don't know any, is to get to know some of us. Becoming a Freemason is a very personal decision and is not a right fit for everyone. We want to get to know you to make sure Masonry is right for you, and you should get to know us to understand if we are the right lodge for you.


We meet once each month and start by sitting down together to share a meal. We spend time catching up but will often have a presentation or discussion of an educational, historical, or philosphical nature. While meetings are reserved for only those who are Freemasons, guests and visitors are warmly received for dinner, by invitation.


No one is asked to become a Freemason. This is not a society that has been privately selected by invitation only. Our Fraternity is built on free-minded men who seek out and ask to be made a Mason. Once you have gotten to know some of the members, ask for a petition. They will let you know if they think it is right for you and the right time to join.


Once you fill out your petition, you will be expected to give references to vouch for your character and values. This is one reason it is so important to get to know some of the members. After you have your petition submitted, several members will be assigned to your request and will meet with you to explore your interest and provide answer to any remaining questions.

Charity2Freemasons are renowned for their charitable acts. As a society, we are taught that true charity is a selfless act, but is it? As Freemasons, we are seekers of Truth. What does the science say and, equally important, what does it mean? Continuing with our annual theme, "Geometry: The Art and Science of Relationships," we will be focusing on "Our Relationship with Charity."  Our guest speaker is a Harvard Professor and TEDx Cambridge presenter who has studied the science of Charity and our motivations behind performing charitable acts.

Please join the members of Alpha Lodge for a dinner presentation and discussion. Dinner is open to all Freemasons and vouched friends of the fraternity. Registration is required.
