This will be a very busy Saturday.
Due to the unexpected funeral of Grand Master Steven Johnson, we are shifting the 32nd Degree conferral planned for today to next Thursday. Today, after the 30th Degree, buses will be available to transport brethren to the Masonic Memorial Service.
If you are taking or observing the Scottish Rite Degrees this cycle, join us at Franklin and Dupont Avenues So. for the 18th, 30th, and 32nd Degree Conferral for all those finishing their degree cycle. This is a beautiful ceremony, and a proud culmination for all your work. Suggested attire is formal (black tuxedos or black suits).Those participating in the full series of degrees this cycle will have witnessed the 18th already, but the 30th and 32nd are new to them.
This day also marks the last segment of our annual "Reunion" or One-Day Class for the Scottish Rite. Candidates may request to enter the Scottish Rite via the One Day conferral (as an alternative to the 4-month cycle of degrees held most Thursday evenings) by petitioning (forms available HERE). Participants should arrive no later than 8AM, with registration opening at 7:30AM. Start times for the degrees are 8:30AM for the 18th Degree, 10:30AM for the 30th Degree, lunch is from Noon to 1PM, then at 3PM we'll start the 32nd Degree.
The office number is 612-871-1500.
