Hi, guys —

I have just found out that our Catholic bishop is attending monthly meetings of the Freemason order. I know from several sources, including Catholic priests, who have proof from various sources that the bishop of our diocese attends various Masonic social functions, including a monthly breakfast get together.

In my research, I have read that this is a violation of Canon Law! This bishop of the diocese of Greensburg, Pennsylvania, at the time of this posting, is not a good example to the Catholic Faith.

  • Please offer me some advice in this matter!

Thank you!


  { Seeing that our Bishop is attending Freemason meetings and functions, do you have any advice? }

Bob and Mike gave the following team answer:


I would suggest you contact the National Catholic Conference of Bishops (NCCB) and follow it up. Perhaps you can send an e-mail via their web site or find the correct office.

Just a thought. You could be following or spreading a rumor. It needs to be verified by someone with the authority to rebuff this bishop.
