January Stated Meeting and 12th Degree, January 8, 2020

Please share this event with your Scottish Rite and other Masonic Brethren!

NOTE: This Stated Meeting is postponed one week to January 8, because the first Wednesday of January is New Year’s Day. We wish you a happy, joyous, and safe New Year 2020!

Our monthly stated membership meeting will be held at 7:00 PM in the Scottish Rite Cathedral Theater (2nd floor). Don’t forget to bring your membership card for check-in.

The Double Eagle Café will open for dinner at 5:30 PM.

The 12th Degree, Master of Mercy, will be presented in video format following the business meeting.

The purpose of the Twelfth Degree is to teach the quality of forgiveness. Forgiveness means a spirit of compassion and a tenderness of heart which dispose a person not just to overlook the opportunity for revenge, but to cease to feel enmity or resentment toward an offender.

If you would like to become a member of the Scottish Rite, please join us this evening! Please note that in order to become a Scottish Rite Mason, you must be a Master Mason in good standing. Petitions may be obtained from any Valley officer prior to the meeting (look for the members in gold hats). We will confer the 4th Degree at 6PM at every stated meeting for any petitioners and this will make you a Scottish Rite Mason immediately (but please come back to witness the other 28 degrees of the Scottish Rite exemplified at our Stated Meetings and at our annual Convocation and Reunion in November!).

We look forward to seeing you all!
