Our mission:

The thirty-second further amplifies and summarizes the teachings of the previous degrees. This completes the formal lessons of the Scottish Rite. 


The fifteenth and sixteenth degrees relate to the rebuilding of the Temple of Zerubbabel. In our rituals of the seventeenth and eighteenth degrees we teach religious philosophy. 
The 19th through the 30th Degrees continue our Masonic education. These are termed the philosophical and chivalric degrees. 

The fourth to the fourteenth degrees amplify the legend of the Master Mason degree and the story of the building of King Solomon's Temple.

These degrees are designed to impress more forcibly the teachings of the first three degrees.
