Welcome

Welcome to the website of Sunrise Lodge No. 783, where our motto “Lux ex Tenebris” (“Light from Darkness”) is not just another catch phrase – it’s our relentless pursuit.

What you’ll find here will pretty much answer any questions, whether you’re already a member of Sunrise; a member of another lodge looking for information about us; or someone looking to join Freemasonry in general. Most if not all queries can be found here. Below is a thumbnail-sketch on how to do just that.

If you’re already a member of another Lodge and want to learn more about Sunrise in general, whether it’s our history, a visit, or looking to relocate you’ll find this under the “About Us” tab on the main-menu, or (Click Here).

If you are thinking about joining Sunrise Lodge; becoming a Freemason; trying to find out what this fraternity is all about, et cetera, you’ll find most general questions answered under the “FAQ’s” on the main-menu above, or (Click Here).

If you’ve already familiarized yourself with Freemasonry and have made the decision you want to be part of this grand fraternity you’ll find what is required to begin that process in earnest under the “Become One” tab on the main menu, or (Click Here).

For those wondering if there are any “Famous Freemasons,” let’s just say there are far too many to list on this site. That “list” is ever evolving and growing across the web.

However, just like anything, when it comes to the “web” there are a lot of different sites claiming to “know” something that are suspect in their claims at best, and outright incorrect or specious at worst. Bearing that in-mind here are two sites that may help.

First, there is one from the publisher Wiley of “Freemasons For Dummies” by Christopher Hodapp. A quintessential must read for anyone (i.e. Members and/or non-members alike) looking for in-depth, common language explanations to relative questions, with straight answers pertaining to the fraternity and its many intricacies. You’ll find that list by simply clicking (Here).

Second, you may also want to visit the current “Wikipedia” listing for a more exhaustive list, all the while remembering Wikipedia is an “open source” platform, meaning – it’s susceptible to well-meaning but often times erroneous, if not outright specious misinformation. You can view them directly by simply clicking (Here).

With that said, on behalf of the officers and members of Sunrise Lodge No. 783, we both welcome and thank you for your interest.

Stated Meeting Update

Due to complications our candidate for the EA Degree is under self-quarantine therefore we will not be conducting degree work on Tuesday the 19th. In its place we will be conducting a relatively short meeting in person at the Lodge, afterward the officers and I will be working on practicing ritual, etc. Any members interested in attending can use the “Contact” page or email me direct to ensure the current occupancy rules are followed.
