The Spring “Jacques DeMolay” class is coming up quickly on Saturday, April 4, 2020, at Grand Lodge in Boston.
Throughout the day, the different bodies will be putting on degrees to exemplify the ideals of Scottish Rite. The 12°, Master of Mercy, teaches forgiveness, compassion, and brotherly love. The 15°, Knight of the East, emphasizes the importance of loyalty and fidelity to all of our beliefs and obligations. Knight of the Rose Croix, the 18°, reveals the message of the new law of love and instructs us to prepare a temple in our hearts.
Scottish Rite and Masonry, in general, is dedicated to helping our youth afford higher education, and we realize that with the ever-rising costs of colleges and universities, applying for multiple scholarships is a necessity!
