What is 32nd Degree Freemasonry?

32nd Degree Freemasonry, also known as Scottish Rite Freemasonry, is a fraternity of Brothers committed to going deeper into the highest principles, teachings, and ideals of the Masonic craft. Considered an appendant body of Freemasonry, 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry is a branch that a Master Mason may join to continue his journey toward even more light and self-discovery.

The Scottish Rite offers a series of degrees (from the 4th degree to the 32nd degree) that supplement and amplify the philosophical teachings of the first three degrees conferred in the symbolic lodge. 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry is sometimes called the "University of Freemasonry" because it uses extensive allegory and dramatic presentation in its degrees to explore the philosophy, history, ethics, and fundamental truths that guide Freemasons' lives.

32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry is a tight-knit community of Masons who seek to be the best version of themselves, find a deeper sense of purpose, and be of service to the world and our fellow man. Learn more about our visions and values.
