The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Rhode Island Jurisdictions, Inc., is a fraternal organization dedicated to the ideal of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man. Our fraternal organization takes good men, and builds and develops them to be better men. We dispense charity, promote good and solid family values, and endeavor significantly to aid in the uplifting of humanity.
You may have heard, early Christmas morning, our Prince Hall Masonic Lodge suffered a horrific fire destroying the 100 year old building located at 883 Eddy Street in Providence. While this is a significant loss for our lodges and chapters, it is an even greater loss for our community. Our facility was one of a handful of affordable venues that families on the Southside of Providence could go for birthday celebrations, quinceaneras, anniversaries and to gather during the time of loss of a loved one.
We will rebuild "The Temple," as it is affectionately known, and hope you can be part of that effort. On December 31, we launched our capital campaign and to date we have raised $125,000. We still have a long way to go however continue to be inspired by the generosity of so many both far and near.
We will bring our organization and facility back to the prominence once known, restore partnerships with labor and community groups, and hope you are part of the effort.
The Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Rhode Island hopes that you will consider assisting us in this massive effort to rebuild, and to continue our assistance to the community struggle.
