Welcome to the Savannah Scottish Rite

  In the Scottish Rite, each state constitutes an “Orient,” and each city is known as a “Valley,” or separate Scottish Rite organization consisting of four “Bodies” – “The  Lodge of Perfection,” which confers the ‘Ineffable Degrees” (4th through 14th), the “Chapter of ‘Rose Croix” which confers the “Historical and Religious Degrees’ (15th through 19th); the “Council of Kadosh” which confers the “Chivalric and Philosophical Degrees” (19th through 30th); and the “Consistory, “ which confers the “Official and Ceremonial Degrees” (31st and 32nd). After experiencing the Degrees, one becomes a Scottish Rite Mason or Master of the Royal Secret.

  Our order is more than a fraternity of good fellows, engaged in benevolent practices of friendship and relief. It is an aggressively active or militant order, a knighthood devoted to the cause of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. To establish righteousness and ordain mercy, to protect all the weak and combat all dogmas or doctrines that would imprison the human spirit. This is the mission of Scottish Rite Masonry.

  The Scottish Rite seeks to cultivate in the hearts of men, personal morality and the sentiments of tolerance and fraternity. What has been said in this mission is vividly portrayed in the conferral of the Degrees, and the Scottish Rite Mason is dedicated to the effort to make the spirit of Masonry prevalent in society.

The Scottish Rite Creed of Freemasonry is as follows:

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.

 Charitable Works
The Scottish Rite in Georgia supports three primary public charities, including Childhood Learning Disability Centers, post-secondary scholarships, and our children’s hospital. In addition, the Valleys and members contribute to numerous other Masonic, local, and individual charitable efforts, including: the Grand Lodge’s Masonic Childrens Home in Macon, the Salvation Army, the American Red Cross, the Rainbow for Girls and DeMolay for Boys activities, and help for numerous of our own members who are in need.
Freemasonry has been said to be a 'beautiful system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated through symbols'.  The Scottish Rite seeks to expand upon the teachings of the Blue or Symbolic lodge by conferring an additional 29 degrees, each of which expresses multiple concepts surrounding charity, patriotism, virtue, chivalry and more.  Within these 'high degrees' can be found centuries worth of wisdom that has been handed down from one generation to the next.  Through this, the Scottish Rite is able to help turn good men into better men.
Freemasonry has existed since time immemorial.  The Scottish Rite as we know it today developed from so called High Degrees from France in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.  The Scottish Rite has a rich and deep history, which has withstood the test of time and continues to perform it's good works today.  Since it's inception in 1801, the Supreme Council of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite has been elevating mankind through it's teaching and through it's actions.  Click Here to read more about the Rite and it's history.
