What We Do
"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." - Scottish Rite Creed
We aim to provide a venue for Freemasons in the Washington, DC metropolitan area to enjoy fellowship among men and brothers with common ideals; to learn and teach, and develop a deeper understanding of Masonic philosophy, and what it means to be a good man and citizen.

2015 Spring Reunion - May 8th & 9th
The Washington Valley's Spring Reunion is coming up soon, but time has not run out yet to get in another petition. Don't let your Blue Lodge brothers miss out on becoming a Scottish Rite Mason, just because no one spoke to them about the Rite. Reach out to them, and hand them a petition. Petitions are available on the Valley's website, www.dcsr.org, or at the DCSR office. I hope you will take this opportunity for fellowship to grow our Rite

VMAP is designed to provide every Scottish Rite candidate, member, and leader in the Southern Jurisdiction with a useful working tool for planning and promoting a well-rounded series of Valley activities to engage and involve every member in the life and work of their Valley. In other words, VMAP is designed to help every Valley provide its members with a superior Scottish Rite experience.
VMAP was created entirely by the Scottish Rite Brethren who attended and participated in the 2014 Scottish Rite Regional Leadership Workshops. As a participating Valley, we execute the project by completing specific activities in ten separate subject areas that cover the full spectrum of the Scottish Rite experience.
