PRINCE HALL AMERICANISM DAY
St. Thomas African Episcopal Church
6361 Lancaster Avenue
ASSEMBLE TIME: 3:30 PM
As the Christian has a revival, the Muslim has a pilgrimage to Mecca, so do Prince Hall Masons have revivals, and it is called Prince Hall Americanism Day, celebrated on or as close to September 12th each year. It is a time for the Prince Hall Mason to take stock of his life, renew his faith in God, Country and Fraternity, which will include his neighbor. It is a time to renew his faith in God, his patriotism to his country and his duty to mankind. It is in the truest sense a Masonic Revival.” September 12th is chosen because it is alleged that Prince Hall was born on September 12, 1735
Prince Hall Masons worship often together and they bring the whole Prince Hall Family. Individual Lodges will schedule a church service at least once per year whereby all members of the Lodge, their families, and Sisters in the Prince Hall Family attend. Not only will Blue Lodges do this but also York and Scottish Rite Bodies will do the same. Districts will also call for a church service at least once per year. And OES and the Heroines will also do likewise and invite the Brothers. Unlike Mainstream Masonry, Prince Hall Masons will openly celebrate together. Some outside PHA then form the mistaken impression that Prince Hall only accepts Christians. That is not true. It accepts men of every Faith.
Just a reminder that our 3rd annual retreat will be Saturday September 20th at Positive Force. Start time 10:30am. We will be discussing the future of the Lodge, so bring your ideals, concerns, strategies, and resolutions with you. We ask that you keep in mind this question....."WHERE DO YOU SEE OUR LODGE IN 3 YEARS AND FURTHER?" Lastly, there is a $5:00 donation to offset any expenses that day. THANK YOU, and we hope to see you on the 20th.
On behalf of the Worshipful Master and Wardens, we the elected officers of Bethel Lodge #47 would like to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude for the faith, and confidence that the brothers of this Mighty Lodge have entrusted to our care. It is truly a humbling experience to follow in the footsteps of those great leaders who have gone this way before us as we will strive to do our best to continue in the fine tradition of the greatest lodge in the world. THANK YOU MIGHTY BETHEL#47
