Brethren and Friends:
The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania voted unanimously to recognize the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, Prince Hall Affiliation at the GL of PA's quarterly communication, held in early June. This approval for recognition was contingent upon GL of PA (PHA) 's request for a proper warrant from UGLE, and is currently for inter-visitation only, after guidelines for such inter-visitation have been established by the two Grand Lodges.
Said warrant was granted at UGLE's communication 11 days ago. Details are forthcoming, but the GL of PA will, in the near future, permit inter-visitation.
This is an exciting and historic event for Masonry in Pennsylvania, and I, for one, am looking forward to visiting my PHA Brethren in Pennsylvania.
PA Brethren: for more details, call the GM's info line at 1-888-440-1500. Let it ring 5 times..... it takes a while to pick up.
