Please share this event with your Scottish Rite and other Masonic Brethren!
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 17th Degree, Knight of the East and West, will be presented following the business meeting. This is a BRAND NEW video presentation by the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, and it looks fabulous! Please join us for this degree which has only rarely been performed in the Indianapolis Valley. If you have joined the Scottish Rite in the last three or four years, this is definitely a degree you will need for your passport:
The 17° presents a picture of the conflicts which confronted one man, King Herod the Great, as he labored with the whimsical actions within his family, his court and his kingdom. Although the scene itself is fictitious, the facts relating to the intrigue within the court and King Herod’s renovation of the Second Temple, which had been erected by Zerubbabel, are historically correct. The attitudes of the three factions of the Jewish religious population reflect the conflicts which continue, even today, as we try to understand our places in the plan of the Grand Architect. This degree teaches that we must seek truth in our path through life, and that we should learn from, and avoid repeating, the errors of the past.

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 at our Stated Meetings and at our Convocation and Reunion in November!).
We look forward to seeing you all!
