The new direction of the Scottish Rite is resonating with younger Masons, who represent the future strength of the fraternity. This is a letter from one of them:
"I've recently seen the new Scottish Rite in action, and I'm very impressed. We are supposed to be a fraternity, and we should be looking out for each other. I've seen a great emphasis placed on helping out Masons - and not just Scottish Rite Masons. It didn't matter if you belonged to the Scottish Rite or not, all that mattered was that you were in need.
The Supreme Council has been pushing a return to the fraternity, and it is the right call. When we joined, we agreed to help those Brothers in need. Our Brothers, our beliefs, and our bonds are what make us Masons. The Scottish Rite can only grow stronger if we make ourselves stronger."
Our Supreme Council Grand Almoner's Fund provides the assistance and needed relief to help Masons. It fulfills what we obligated ourselves to do.
“We will strive to be a fraternity that fulfills our Masonic obligation to care for our members”
As Scottish Rite Masons we can be proud to belong to a fraternity that provides needed assistance to our members in their time of need and a fraternity that truly cares for one another.
If you know of a Mason that truly needs some assistance or a helping hand, please contact your state Deputy or Active member. We stand ready to assist our Brothers!. Great Leaders know they don't have all the answers - Rather they build a team of people who either know the answers or will find them.
