Our Vision

We will strive to be a fraternity that fulfills our Masonic obligation to care for our members.
32° Freemasonry seeks to strengthen the community and believes that each man should act in civil life according to his individual judgment and the dictates of his conscience.

Our Values

32° Scottish Rite Masonry expands upon the fundamental principles of Freemasonry, exploring Masonic teachings more deeply. Building upon the ethical and philosophical teachings of the blue lodge, Scottish Rite reveals a wealth of knowledge about Masonry not found in the other degrees. It seeks to enrich the philosophy of the Symbolic Lodge in order to help good men become even better.

A member of the Scottish Rite seeks to:

  • Aid mankind’s search for identity and destiny in God’s universe
  • Produce wiser men in a wiser world, happier men in a happier world, and therefore better men in a better world
  • Promote the dignity of every person and the humanity in all activities

Our core values are:

  • Reverence for God
  • Devotion to Country
  • Integrity
  • Justice
  • Toleration
  • Service

32 ° Freemasonry

Scottish Rite Freemasonry is a way for a Mason to build upon the ethical teachings and philosophy offered in the craft lodge (also known as Blue Lodge), which consists of the first three degrees of Freemasonry: Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft, and Master Mason. The Scottish Rite continues these degrees, from 4° to 32°. A Scottish Rite Freemason may attain the 33°, which is an honor bestowed for outstanding service to the Brotherhood.

THE SYSTEM OF DEGREES:

Each Valley has up to four Scottish Rite bodies, and each body confers a set of degrees. In the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, the bodies are the:
