Pennsylvania Academy of Masonic Knowledge 2010

Twice a year, the Pennsylvania Academy of Masonic Knowledge meets in Elizabethtown, PA, usually presenting two outstanding speakers at each meeting. The Academy meetings are open to any Mason who wishes to attend.

The Spring session of the Academy of Masonic Knowledge will be held on Saturday, March 20th, in the Deike Auditorium of the Freemasons Cultural Center on the campus of the Masonic Village in Elizabethtown.

The two speakers scheduled for the Spring 2010 meeting are:

Bro. C. DeForrest Trexler of Pennsylvania will discuss “Degree Rituals of the Scottish Rite, Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.”

Bro. Sean Graystone, Superintendent of the House of the Temple, will speak on “Esoteric Freemasonry.”

Pre-registration is required. To pre-register, contact Brother Jim Standish with your name, address, Lodge number, telephone number, and e-mail address.

The Fall meeting of the Academy is scheduled for Saturday, October 23, 2010. I will have the honor of addressing the Academy, along with Brother R. William Weisberger, who has written extensively on European Freemasonry, and was the co-editor of Freemasonry on Both Sides of the Atlantic.

Pennsylvania's educational program is outstanding, and other jurisdictions would benefit from similar programs. Membership in the Academy is free to all Pennsylvania Masons, and they offer a Masonic Scholar Certification program, with the requirement of an extensive reading list, and submission of evaluation papers.
