Introducing: Rite on the Road

Any traveling man of 32° Scottish Rite Freemasonry knows there is nothing quite like making the journey to witness a new degree. However, for some Brothers, traveling to observe a degree is not so simple. Whether it be time or money, many Brothers and Master Masons find themselves unable to attend despite best intentions.

The Supreme Council has worked to create a new resource to ensure that any and every Brother who would like to become a Scottish Rite Freemason or seek further enlightenment into our craft can do so. Today, we proudly present Rite on the Road – our newest resource for members and Valleys. Learn more at our blog.

Any traveling man of 32° Scottish Rite Freemasonry knows there is nothing quite like making the journey to witness a new degree. Of course, traveling to observe degrees requires time and financial investment that some brethren just cannot manage -- sometimes preventing Master Masons from joining th...

Today is Four Chaplains Day. It makes the 77th anniversary of the chaplains heroic last sacrifice. The four clergy of different faiths together gave their lives in the Labrador Sea to save others as the SS Dorchester sank after being hit by a German U-boat torpedo.

Our 23° celebrates these heroes, bringing to life their care, love, and sacrifice for others. As part of his work in the Hauts Grades Academy, Brother Art Hebbeler, 32°, explores the meaning and connection of the Four Chaplains to our core values. On this day, it is a fitting essay to read -> http://bit.ly/2RUgFHB

Behind the Scenes: 17°

We know how much it takes to confer a Scottish Rite degree and that not every Valley has the resources to conduct each one. Yet, we feel strongly that all of our Brother should have the opportunity to witness them. To help our members who may be in a smaller Valley, we're working with Brothers throughout the Jurisdiction to create video productions of the degrees.

These productions require a great deal of dedication from many Brothers and we couldn't be prouder of the work they've accomplished. Today, we're excited to bring you behind the scenes of the creation of the 17°. Enjoy.

If you're interested in reading more about the making of the vide, read our new blog. https://bit.ly/361U4fQ
