Recurring Event: One time event

Scottish Rite - Minneapolis Valley
Location: Minneapolis Scottish Rite

A 'terminal' degree, tonight's 14th degree marks the occasion when a new Scottish Rite Mason earns the right to wear a Scottish Rite Ring. The degree stands alone and is performed by volunteers and officers of the Lodge of Perfection within the Scottish Rite.

14th Degree: Perfect Elu - Duties: Assist, encourage and defend the brethren.Protect the oppressed and relieve want and distress. Enlighten the people. Serve the common good and be fruitful of all good works. Lessons: Perfect Elus are both bound and free; bound by their obligation and free from prejudice, intolerance and envy. Masons meet on the level because in their lives authority and liberty are in equilibrium.

The ceremony of the degree of Perfect Elu has two major purposes. First, to encourage reflection on the nature of Deity and man's relationship to Him; and second is to review the duties taught in all the Ineffable Degrees.

At the conclusion of the Lodge ceremony, the Candidate is then a Voting Member of the Scottish Rite.

At a ceremony and dinner this weekend, members who have passed the 14th Degree tonight or over the past year will receive their rings, if they ordered them. Spouses and guests are most welcome to come on Saturday's event. Tonight's actual degree, starting at 6:30PM (a half hour later than normal) is for men of the current class who have passed the 13th degree, and who are moving forward.

Dinner starts at 5PM.

Read about the Scottish Rite here. It's often called "the college of Masonry" for its deeper dive into the Masonic principles first introduced in the first three degrees of Freemasonry. Scottish Rite degrees allow time for group discussion on how our ideals have impacted many good and great men in history, weaving our impact into the Enlightenment and Western Civilization itself. Come join the conversation!
