Why Become a 32° Freemason?

In the craft of Freemasonry, there is no degree considered higher than that of a Master Mason. The degrees of 32° Freemasonry enrich and expand the teachings of the Symbolic Lodge. Through 32° Freemasonry membership, you find an untold wealth of knowledge.

You learn more about Masonry. You more deeply explore questions raised in the blue lodge degrees. By joining 32° Freemasonry, you have an opportunity to journey more deeply into Freemasonry, widen your circle of friends, and serve your Brothers in unique ways.

Our Values

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

  • Aid in humanity’s search for identity and destiny in God’s universe.
  • Produce wiser men in a wiser world, happier men in a happier world, and better men in a better world.
  • Promote the dignity of every person and humanity in all activities.
