Latest Blazing Star Updates

(Updated August 29, 2021)

When you look at your watch and see the hands slowly moving around the dial, one-second moves to the next minute, one-minute moves to the next hour and, one day moves to the next week. So are the cycles of the seasons. As summer comes to a close the autumn winds will soon rake the trees clearing them of their leaves. Soon summer will be forgotten in a cold bed of leaves. However, the Masonic journey continues. September marks the beginning of our Masonic year. This means new Brothers, new education, new opportunities to grow and help our fellow man grow. We may be leaving the easy living for the darker cycle of life but this is the time when Masons come together and work even harder, together.

If you are interested in Freemasonry in East Aurora, NY, and want to help those in need, contribute to the community, and become part of a worldwide fraternity, please feel free to contact us for an in-person or Zoom meeting to learn more.

“Capronic” Password

A new Masonic year is soon starting and the COVID restrictions are lifted. This means we are able to give and receive the Master’s password. However, one of our tenents is Charity. W:. Capron had the simple yet profoundly impactful idea to substitute the password with a nonperishable food item during the COVID pandemic. We are continuing this small and easy gesture. We are keeping the Tenent of Charity active at Blazing Star Lodge.

Blazing Star Lodge – East Aurora, NY

Proud yet unassuming and slightly hidden behind some old-growth trees, the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge stands as a permanent fixture in East Aurora, New York.  It overlooks the town with a protective eye ensuring all who pass are good and upright citizens.  We like to think that the presence of the Lodge in our town sets a stage of history, pride, and Brotherly love among the members of the Lodge and the citizens of the town.

As part of the East Aurora, New York community since 1818, the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge actively seeks ways to contribute to the success of our neighbors.  We do this by supporting little league baseball, FISH of East Aurora, The Rural Outreach Center, and Scholarships to graduating seniors at Iroquois High School and East Aurora High School.  Most recently the formation of Brother Of The Bread lead by Brother Andrew Egressy.  We are interested in our community and the people who call East Aurora and surrounding areas, home.  

Our members meet in the Lodge every second and fourth Tuesday of each month September through June.  Dinners begin at 6:30 pm with communications starting promptly at 7:30 pm.  If you are a good and upstanding man, interested in improving your life and the life of everyone around you, please do not hesitate to knock on our door, virtually or literally, before 7:30 pm, and join us for dinner.  We encourage social discussions before and after official communications are complete.

Whence Came You? – 0517 – The Debate on Science and Society Whence Came You? – Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, we look at society's decline through perhaps one of the most influential platforms in our lives today–social media. Brother Greg Knot talks about this issue and how Freemasonry can bring society back together. Then we've got a brand-new segment from Brother Matt Gallagher. In his segment on Practical Freemasonry, he talks about just what is "Practical Freemasonry" and some of the dangers of not knowing your audience. We'll wrap it up with an exploration of science. Just what is science? In Freemasonry, we have the seven liberal arts and sciences. In what context do we study them? And can science always be trusted? All this and more in this episode of "Whence Came You?" Stay tuned! Thanks for listening, and have an amazing week! Links: Where Are We Headed?
