What is the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia?

A Fellowship

The Society is a fellowship of individuals and families; an Ethical Humanist religious community. We celebrate and support each other. We enjoy working together. The personal growth of each member is our primary concern.

A Practical Philosophy

Instead of attempting to escape today’s problems through the empty promises of material success and other-worldly religions, we look for meaning through creative actions. We can enrich our own lives by improving relationships within our families, among our friends, at the workplace and in the community. Our programs reflect a belief in the individual’s capacity to make a difference.

A Place to Learn

Our classes, forums and platforms help us understand this confusing, sometimes uncaring world. We turn to reason and feelings instead of dogma.
