A Raising Under the Stars

31 December 23

Freemasons Central West and Lodge Highway have collaborated to bring the full theatrical experience of the Third Degree Ceremony to life in “A Raising Under The Stars.

This unique event, set against the backdrop of a sprawling 3,500-acre working farm in Cowra, promises to be a blend of tradition, nature, and communal celebration, scheduled for the enchanting evening of February 24th, 2024.

Under the vast expanse of the night sky, this Lodge Meeting like no other, aims to transcend the usual setting of our ceremonies, offering a profound and immersive experience. The serene and tranquil environment is set to heighten the impact of the ceremony, creating a rare and captivating atmosphere for the performance of the third degree.

The organisation of such an event is no small feat. Over the past year, meticulous planning has gone into ensuring that the ceremony aligns with the ancient landmarks and customs while embracing the beauty of the natural surroundings. No stone has been left unturned with respect to the commitment of the organisers to uphold the sanctity and security of Freemasonry.

Following the masonic proceedings, the Festive Board set amidst the natural splendour of the Central West and the picturesque banks of the Lachlan River, attendees will indulge in a sumptuous banquet, and participate in brotherhood, joy, and fraternal spirit.

Understanding the varied preferences of its those attending, there are accommodation options ranging from on-site camping to comfortable in-town accommodation. The Alana Motel is recommended for brethren preferring to stay in town, ensuring that everyone finds their comfortable spot in this unique experience.

This event is an open invitation to the Masonic community to witness a unique blend of ancient tradition and modern execution. It's an opportunity to be part of a living tradition, to experience the unity and brotherhood that Freemasonry stands for, all under the spellbinding Cowra sky.

“A Raising Under The Stars” stands as a testament to the enduring allure of Freemasonry’s values and the craft’s capacity to be more than just a ceremony; but a celebration of heritage, a communion with nature, and a demonstration of the timeless relevance of Masonic teachings in today’s world.
