Scottish Rite Freemasonry at a Glance
The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, as it is known today, has its origins on the continent of Europe, in France.
We are part of the Fraternity of Masons, dedicated to teaching mankind the tenets of Morality, Relief of Need, Brotherly Love, Truth, Honor, Respect of Womanhood, Peace, and many other glorious lessons that help men to better themselves and the world in general.
Long believed to be a “secret society”, Masonry, of which Scottish Rite Masonry is an integral part, has no “secrets” from the non-initiated, other than modes of recognition for the membership.
Every part of the lessons of Masonry has been in print for more than 150 years, available to the general public in any well equipped public library.
We believe that the most important “non-secret” that exists in all Masonic Organizations, is the ability of men and women, of all different religions, races, creeds, political backgrounds and nationalities to work together in harmony to perform their charitable goals on behalf of the world.
At meetings and events, it is commonly understood that politics, religion and social status are not discussed. Men work together as equals, on the Level, to achieve goals that help to improve the lives of the citizens in their local and non-local areas.
