Welcome to Union Lodge No. 5, Ancient Free & Accepted Masons
Celebrating 255 Years (1763-2018) of Freemasonry in Stamford.
We are located at 47 Kirkham Place in Stamford, Connecticut 06906.
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. Union Lodge No. 5 was chartered on November 17, 1763 and has been quietly serving the Stamford 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. Union Lodge operates by charter under the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Connecticut.
To Brothers of the Fraternity our Stated Communications are the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, with gavel down at 7:30PM, Dinner at 6:30PM. Please confirm with the Junior Warden. We can accommodate the public only up until 7:10PM on these evenings.

Becoming a Mason
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 of an educational, historical, or philosophical 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 of the reasons it is so important to get to know some of the members. After you have your petition submitted, an investigation committee will be assigned to your request and will meet with you to explore your interest.
