Brethren of the 42nd Masonic District,

In accordance with existing directives from the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, ALL Masonic events are cancelled effective immediately. This will include stated meetings, anniversaries, seminars, etc. This step is being taken out an abundance of caution in response to the COVID-19 virus and to prevent unnecessary exposure for any of our members. This is an evolving situation and as I receive further information or directions, I will get them out to the membership ASAP. Please keep an eye on the District Facebook page for updates as I receive them.
