Welcome to the San Jose Scottish Rite

Freemasonry has been a part of San Jose for over 150 years. San Jose Lodge #10 (a blue lodge) was issued a dispensation to operate on 11 July 1850. The first recorded communication of degrees of Scottish Rite Masonry was on 16 May 1883 by Albert Pike and the San Jose Lodge of Perfection #13 (a part of Scottish Rite masonry) was organized on 10 March 1885. The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite has maintained a temple in San Jose since 1909 and we have been at our current location since 1984.

In addition to being a fraternal organization that attracts the best and most respected men from the community, the San Jose Scottish Rite supports many public institutions including police and fire departments.

When our facilities are not being used for Rite functions, we make them available for rental. Social & religious gatherings, weddings, conventions, reunions and educational events are all welcome at our facilities.

Our charity work is focused primarily on helping children with language and speech disorders. We maintain a clinic on our grounds where children receive treatment free from charge.

Shut-Ins

Please remember those brothers that are shut in. A friendly call or note from a fellow brother would be a warn and appreciated gesture. Though, they cannot always be present, they are certainly not out of mind. We wish them all the best.

And this year, San Jose Scottish Rite will be part of the party! We will be showing the whole 6 hours on a large screen in our downstairs conference room, complete with comfortable chairs, munchies, and drinks -- maybe even hot dogs & burgers.

  • From the Wise Master (May, 2016) Greetings, and hope you all are well. I would like to thank all who attended the Maunday Thursday Service of Remembrance and Renewal this past March. I would like to give a special thanks to Ill. Richard Fisher, and Angela Athans for their tireless efforts in making the evening run so smooth. Another thank you is needed for the cast, and the job well done by all. With Easter having just past, this means Passover is not far out. Passover is from the 15th through the 22nd of Nissan (a month on the Hebrew calendar). We all know the story, and it will not all fit into this months article. If you wand a rich history lesson, Ill. Doornbos has ...
