32° Scottish Rite Freemasonry seeks to strengthen the community and believes that each man should act in civil life according to his individual judgment and the dictates of his conscience.

32 ° Scottish Rite Freemasonry

32° Scottish Rite Masonry expands upon the fundamental principles of Freemasonry, exploring Masonic teachings more deeply. Building upon the ethical and philosophical teachings of the blue lodge, 32° Scottish Rite Freemasonry reveals a wealth of knowledge about Masonry not found in the other degrees. It seeks to enrich the philosophy of the Symbolic Lodge in order to help good men become even better.

A Scottish Rite Freemason may attain the 33°, which is an honor bestowed for outstanding service to the Brotherhood.

A member of 32° Scottish Rite Freemasonry seeks to:

  • Aid mankind’s search for identity and destiny in God’s universe

  • Produce wiser men in a wiser world, happier men in a happier world, and therefore better men in a better world

  • Promote the dignity of every person and the humanity in all activities

Our core values are:

  • Reverence for God
