Event Details

The Masonic Society (www.themasonicsociety.com) founded in 2008 by regular Masons, consists of brothers who have a deep and abiding desire to seek knowledge, explore history, discover symbolism, debate philosophies, and in short, who are at the forefront of charting a path for the future of Freemasonry.  The goal of The Masonic Society is to provide assistance and cooperation to individual research lodges throughout the Masonic world.  Our annual meetings are held in February each year during the Allied Masonic Degrees’ “Masonic Week”.  We also meet in semi-annual session during the summer months at various locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.  We have chosen Philadelphia for our 2012 semi-annual meeting in part so that we can tour the lovely Grand Lodge Temple there. 

Speakers for our afternoon session include

  • Thomas Savini, Director, Livingston Masonic Library Grand Lodge of New York - The Robert R. Livingston Library
  • Ben Hoff, PM, New Jersey Lodge of Research - The Original Ahiman Rezon
  • Howard Kanowitz, New Jersey Lodge of Research - Redemption at Gettysburg: A Study in Masonic Duty
  • Ray Thorne, current WM of the New Jersey Lodge of Research - Parallax, Transits and Geometry

Our Banquet speaker will be R. W. Thomas W. Jackson, Past Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, and Executive Secretary of the World Conference of Grand Lodges.  He will speak on "The Need for Masonic Education".

The entire program is non-tyled.  Anyone may purchase a ticket and attend.  Please note that ticket availability is limited.
