When You Join

Membership in the Natick Sons and Daughters of Italy is open to everyone - Italians and non-Italians. Our founders were Italian immigrants who sought community, support and a place that felt like a home away from home. Our hope is that everyone feels welcome and ‘at home’ at the Natick Sons and Daughters of Italy.

The Natick Sons and Daughters of Italy is a fraternal organization. An old fashioned word perhaps, but we have an old fashioned history, as we were founded in 1926. As a fraternal organization, we are committed to creating and environment of companionship, social interaction and purpose. We desire to provide activities, events and volunteer opportunities that call on our heritage, draw us together and bring us closer to our community.


A State-Wide Organization

Grand Lodge of Massachusetts

The Grand Lodge of Massachusetts was chartered on January 25, 1914 as the fifth Grand Lodge in the Order Sons of Italy in America. The first Local Lodge, the Ettore Fieramosca Lodge # 60 was organized even earlier, in 1910. Over the years, over 230 Lodges would be formed in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.

Today, the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts is made up of over 6,000 members belonging to 68 lodges in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. The State Council is comprised of 18 members, accompanied by 5 State Past Presidents, a State Chaplain, and 15 Chairmen of Permanent Commissions. The Grand Lodge office was located for many years in Boston's North End, followed by a building situated in Cambridge, and is now located at 93 Concord Avenue in Belmont, Massachusetts.

Commission for Social Justice

The Commission for Social Justice (CSJ) is comprised of state and local chapters organized through the Sons of Italy and united by a governing national commission. The Grand Lodge of Massachusetts Commission for Social Justice is an integral part of this nationwide effort. Its objective is to ensure equal concern, treatment, respect, and opportunity for all people. The commission works tirelessly, not only to eliminate that which is misrepresentative and ethnically insensitive, but to accentuate and promote that which offers a true and positive portrayal of the Italian American.
