The Resurgence of Freemasonry: A Lecture with Grand Historian R.W. Mark E. Koltko-Rivera, Ph.D.

September 29, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us on Thursday, September 29th at 6:30 PM for what is sure to be an exciting lecture! Friends and family are welcome.

In his presentation, R.W. Bro. Mark E. Koltko-Rivera argues that the last thirty years of the Fraternity’s history make it clear that, unless very serious and radical changes are made to the status quo, American Freemasonry will become all but extinct within the lives of the men whom we are now initiating. Koltko-Rivera explains why this is so, how we arrived at this juncture, and, most importantly, what Masons can do to not only arrest the decline of Masonry, but bring about the resurgence of the Craft to a state where we have more Freemasons—and stronger Masons—than we have ever had in the United States.
