Begin Your Journey to 32°

Delve deeper into the core values of Freemasonry by joining 32° Scottish Rite Freemasonry™.

You will be part of a network of Brothers 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.

Building upon the lessons learned in blue lodge, the core values and 29 degrees of the Scottish Rite unite us in our quest to become better men and better Masons.

In these unprecedented times, we are offering multiple ways for interested Master Masons to join our brotherhood by attending a 4° date in-person or online. New members had a great experience joining virtually last fall, which you can read more about here.

Online Joining Opportunities

With COVID-19 restricting many in-person gatherings, the following opportunities to join virtually are available this spring. While nothing compares to the camaraderie and joy found at our in-person Reunions, our virtual joining opportunities are a fulfilling and meaningful way to begin your Scottish Rite journey.

To join our fraternity through a Join the Rite Night or Virtual Reunion, your application must have been submitted and accepted by your local Valley.

Once your application has been accepted, you can begin your journey to 32° by registering for a Join the Rite Night or Virtual Reunion.

Join the Rite Nite

Join the Rite Night

The 4° is a requisite for membership in the Scottish Rite, Northern Masonic Jurisdiction. To provide Master Masons the opportunity to witness the 4° from the safety and convenience of home, accepted candidates can now witness the 4° Builder at 7:30 PM ET online on any of the following dates:

April 15 - 7:30pm (ET)
April 29 - 7:30pm (ET)

Best of all, candidates can stay online after to join their new Brothers in watching our feature degree presentation during Thursday Night at the Rite at 8 PM EST! Join our fraternity and meet your fellow Scottish Rite Masons while witnessing an additional degree that furthers you along your path towards the revered 32° - all in one event.

“I’ve found a purpose, a path, friends, and family all because of this fraternity.”
– Bro. Curran, Jr.

“I attended the October 3rd Virtual Reunion and any Brother skeptical of the online format, fear not - it was a top-notch presentation and a great experience. I’m grateful that in these uncertain times, light finds a way to meet those that seek it. Brethren, register today and continue your journey.”

- Bro. Dillion

"Words are useless to express my feelings. I had goosebumps during the entire Virtual Reunion and tears of joy in my eyes. Nothing was missing even if the form changed, the substance was all well there. Not one second did I feel alone in this journey."

- Bro. Mircea
