There are three Shrine Temples in Montana - Al Bedoo in Billings, Algeria in Helena, and Bagdad in Butte. Each of the three temples have a variety of activities designed to make being a Shriner and supporting the 22 hospitals fun!

The Shrine Temples in Montana are 3 of the 18 Temples that make up the Pacific Northwest Shrine Association, PNSA. The PNSA is held in different locations each winter, for a business meeting, and each summer for a ceremonial and fun meeting. In 2022, the winter session of PNSA was hosted by Bagdad Temple and held in Butte, MT!

Shriners – Making the World a Better Place

Shriners influence and impact the world around them in so many ways. From their selfless devotion to their philanthropy, Shriners Children’s, to their generous support of each other, and their tireless work in their communities, Shriners continue to make a difference in all they do. Over the past 150 years, our fraternity membership has included world leader (including American Presidents), business CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, famous actors and blue-collar workers. The strength of our fraternity is our focus on making the world a better place. 

Shriners Children's is the official philanthropy of Shriners International and as a Shriner you can engage in activities and volunteering to support the mission of the healthcare system.  Each Shriners chapter engages in creating and managing fundraising events for the health care system. As a Shriner you can play a role in the mission of Shriners Children's.
