WELCOME

We 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, the Philadelphia Ethical Society is a member of the American Ethical Union.

—Hugh Taft-Morales, Leader

SUNDAY MORNING PROGRAMS

We’ve gone hybrid! The core of our programming is our weekly Ethical Society meetings which are held at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays. Some events are online-only, and some are hybrid in-person/online. Details about how to join us are in the individual listings. In most cases discussion will follow the formal program.

See below for upcoming Sunday morning topics.
