Benefits to joining the Scottish Rite


  • The Scottish Rite offers an unsurpassed field for the study of Masonry.

  • It enlarges upon and explains and applies the symbolism of Masonry.

  • It exemplifies and makes clear the truths and allegory of the Blue Lodge and the first three degrees.

  • It presents an unequaled opportunity for the practical demonstration of the teachings of Freemasonry.

  • It gives one a fellowship in its literature, with the deepest minds and purest characters of Freemasonry.

  • It allows one to participate in the glorious work of spreading the doctrine of the Fatherhood of God and Brotherhood of Man.

  • It gives one a greater incentive to higher thoughts and nobler deeds because of a greater knowledge of one’s responsibility and the history of the institution of the Scottish Rite.

  • It creates within one a greater love for chivalry, a greater respect for philosophy, and a never ending love for one’s Blue Lodge.

  • It enjoins on every brother the support of the American public schools; non-partisan, non­sectarian, efficient, democratic; for all of the children of all of the people and equal educational opportunities for all.

  • It inculcates patriotism, love of the flag, respect for law and order and undying loyalty to constitutional government.

Freemasonry embraces the highest moral laws and will bear the test of any system of ethics or philosophy ever promulgated for the uplift of man.
