Scottish Rite - Minneapolis Valley
Location: Minneapolis Scottish Rite

Scottish Rite brethren are welcome to participate with those who are taking their Scottish Rite degrees for the first time at the Minneapolis Valley, at Franklin and Dupont Ave. So.

The degrees begin at 6PM, with dinner at 5PM. Bring your dues card to show at the door. The Minneapolis Valley is a treasure, being only one of a few SR valleys in the nation to present all 29 degrees of the Scottish Rite (4th thru 32) in full theatrical form, and they do it twice per year.

Tonight's schedule includes the 7th, 8th and 9th Degrees:

7th Degree: Provost and Judge - Duty: Let justice be the guide of all your actions. Lessons: All actions have consequences. Be just judging others’ motives.

8th Degree: Intendant of the Building - Duty: Be benevolent and charitable. Lessons: Benevolence and charity demand we correct our own faults and those of others. That which a man knows dies with him; therefore, transmit your knowledge. Labor is honorable if done with sobriety, temperance, punctuality, and industry.

9th Degree: Elu of the Nine - Duties: To enlighten our souls and minds. To instruct and enlighten the people. To be vigilant to the interests and honor of our country. Lessons: Ignorance is the principal enemy of human freedom. A free press is indispensable to true liberty. Remorse and guilt are God’s punishment and more severe than that of man.

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. Contact the Rite secretary, Ken Hill, at (612) 871-1500 for more information, visit their website. or simply look here for a petition to join. Come join the conversation!
