Scottish Rite Radio...
What is this exactly? To help our members advance through our degree system each of our Valley Bodies will be performing degrees in a virtual format. Instead of you witnessing a degree you will be able to listen to the degree much like radio programs were performed in the 1930s and 1940s.
Details will be forthcoming on how you will be able to register for this event but for now, save the following dates:
Chapter of Rose Croix - 11° Sublime Master Elected Performance Date Friday, July 10, 2020
Consistory - 27° Knight of Jerusalem Performance Date Friday, July 31, 2020
Lodge of Perfection - 13° Master of the Ninth Arch Performance Date Friday, August 14, 2020
Consistory - 28° Knight of the Sun Performance Date Friday, August 28, 2020
