What is the Scottish Rite ?

The Scottish Rite 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.

A member of the Scottish Rite seeks to:

  • Exalt the dignity of every person, the human side of his daily activities, and the maximum service to humanity. 

  • Aid mankind’s search in God’s universe for identity, for development and for destiny, and thereby produce better men in a better world, happier men in a happier world and wiser men in a wiser world.

The Scottish Rite is one of the appendant bodies of Freemasonry that a Master Mason may join for further exposure to the principles of Freemasonry.

In the United States the Scottish Rite is officially recognized by Grand Lodges as an extension of the degrees of Freemasonry.The Scottish Rite builds upon the ethical teachings and philosophy offered in the craft lodge, or blue lodge, through dramatic presentation of the individual degrees.

In the Valley of Danville, we seek to bring together Master Masons who are in search of further lessons, further fellowship, and further light.  We endeavor to provide experiences and tools that will inspire our members to become better Masons, better husbands, better fathers, better friends, and better men.  We believe this will make for better lodges, better families, better communities, and a better world.  We invite all Master Masons to join us on this journey that is the Scottish Rite.
