Orient of Washington

Our mission:


Welcome to the Seattle Scottish Rite home page. We are a fraternal organization dedicated to furthering Freemasonry beyond that of a Master Mason.


The Scottish Rite not only expands on the first three degrees of Freemasonry, we dive into the nuts and bolts of religious, philosophical and Masonic thought and practice.


Within the Lodge of Perfection you will be introduced to the concepts of the Kabbalah, the Tree of Life, finding the lost word, and many other concepts. In the Chapter of Rose Croix you will be introduced to Rosicrucian thought and will learn about the concepts of religious, historical, moral and philosophical ideals. In the Council of Kadosh you will be introduced to mystical, chivalric and philosophical systems. Lastly, Consistory reveals the dynamic relationship between human law as a means of achieving justice and divine justice as an ideal and will finally learn the Royal Secret and become a Master of the Royal Secret. 

Human progress is our cause, liberty of thought our supreme wish, freedom of conscience our mission, and the guarantee of equal rights to all people everywhere our ultimate goal.
