I invite you to explore our website to find out about our programs, community, and historic building on the southwest corner of Rittenhouse Square. Ethical Humanism, a humanist, religious and educational movement, has nurtured religious humanism and contributed to progressive causes for well over a century. Founded in 1885 as the Philadelphia Ethical Society, we are a member of the American Ethical Union.

The core of our programming are our weekly Ethical Society meetings which are held at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays. Our Platforms are free and open to the public. A coffee hour follows for discussion and conversation.

During Sunday Platforms on two (2) Sundays in a month, we offer Sunday Ethical Education for Kids (SEEK) programs for elementary-school-age children and early adolescents. Check the Sunday Platforms page for the upcoming SEEK program dates.
