How to Join

If You Are Not a Mason

Before you can join the Scottish Rite, you first must become a Master Mason in a Masonic Lodge under a Grand Lodge that belongs to the Conference of Grand Masters in North America (COGMINA) or to a Grand Lodge recognized by a COGMINA Grand Lodge. For further information, contact your local Scottish Rite Body who can in turn assist you in finding the Masonic lodge nearest you.

If You Are a Blue Lodge Mason

To join the Scottish Rite you must:
  • Be a Master Mason in good standing;
  • Complete a petition and include the appropriate fee; and
  • Attend a “Reunion” where the Scottish Rite Degrees are conferred.
