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 Scottish Rite Masons 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 a good citizen.

From the Secretary

Welcome to the official website of the District of Columbia Scottish Rite. I believe that the sections and links found here are self explanatory, but if  you are unable to find what you are looking for, please use the contact information to get in touch with one of our staff to assist you. Thank you for your interest in the DCSR.


Brethren, please remember that although the office will be open for business as usual,  there are no DCSR meetings during July and August. Our next meeting will be on September 5, 2017, when the Mithras Lodge of Perfection will assemble at the House of the Temple at the regular time for dinner and a program.

Have a safe and happy summer.
