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.


The Freemasons don't have many requirements, but the few requirements we have we adhere to strictly:

You must be a man of at least 18 years of age

We welcome all men, regardless of age, ethnicity, social status, and profession. We value diversity and recognize that differences make us stronger. We welcome men of all races, place of origin, and sexual preference. We believe all are equal and should be treated as such.

You must profess a belief in a higher power or supreme being

We welcome men of all religious beliefs, orders, sects, and spiritualities, but we do require a belief in a supreme being. How you express your spirituality is up to the individual members, and we value diversity in spirituality, but spirituality is at the core of who we are and what we do.

You must be of good character and have a record of such

We offer membership to those that desire to be and do good, and who have a fundamental desire to be better. While we believe that all deserve to be treated well and with respect and dignity, our membership is reserved for those that have a background of being upstanding and good.

You must be able to meet the financial obligations of membership

The financial obligation is minimal when compared with the cost of everyday living, but as the word of a Freemason is his bond, every Freemason must acknowledge and agree to honor the nominal fees required to do the business of the lodge. With that obligation in mind, we are transparent in discussing all costs and fees, and we will openly discuss this with you, so that you can ensure that you can meet these requirements.

If you are a family man, we must have the agreement of your family

We are a fraternity that professes to be a force of good in the life of a man. It is important that we know that membership in our lodge will not cause a disruption in a man's family. During the process of becoming a member, we will openly share what we do and how we do it with a potential member's family and seek their agreement.
