Widows Sons at the PA Grand Lodge Rededication

Philadelphia’s Masonic Temple celebrates its 150th anniversary this year with a series of special events and free tours. The Masonic Temple opened in 1873 and contains artwork, frescos, stained glass, murals, and sculptures which connect Freemasons and non-Freemasons to an inspirational world of art, architecture, and history.

This National Historic Landmark building, located at One North Broad Street, is a treasure that has been hidden in plain sight, despite its prominent location next to City Hall.

On June 24, 2023 a public rededication of the building occurred in Corinthian Hall.  During the rededication ceremony, the Right Worshipful Grand Master – Jeffrey M. Wonderling acknowledged the Pennsylvania Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association.  The RWGM acknowledged the Pennsylvania Widows Sons MRA for their dedication to supporting the Masonic Widow’s Guild as well as Masonic Children’s Home in Elizabethtown.

Prior to the rededication ceremony, the PAWSMRA members present enjoyed a private lunch with RWGM Wondering.  After the conclusion of the ceremony a private tour of the building was provided to the Widows Sons.

It was truly a day to remember!
