Purpose
The Pennsylvania Lodge of Research is a unique occurrence in the history of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, as this is the first Lodge constituted within our Jurisdiction solely for the purpose of Masonic study.

Although warranted by the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, this Lodge will work differently than any other Lodge within the jurisdiction. This Lodge's membership is divided into three categories: Full Member, Associate Member, and Fellow.

Full membership is extended to those who are members in good standing of a symbolic Lodge, constituted under the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. Associate membership is extended to Brethren who are members of a Lodge outside our Jurisdiction, which is recognized by the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. Fellows are distinguished members, elected for their outstanding scholarship.

The Pennsylvania Lodge of Research will hold only two Stated Meetings each year, with Special Meetings to be held at the discretion of the Worshipful Master. Meetings will be held at various Masonic sites throughout the Commonwealth. No Craft Degrees will be conferred. The elected Worshipful Master will not receive "the Word of the Chair," nor will he become a voting member of the Grand Lodge. Membership in the Pennsylvania Lodge of Research will not constitute dual membership.
