Classroom Lecture Series

Updated July 19th, 2023

Twice a year, our valley hosts 2 reunions (candidate initiations). During this time, there is an overabundance of knowledge imparted on the candidate (“like drinking water from a firehose”).

This lecture series is designed to review the material performed during the reunion in a seminar format, whereby the degrees, symbolism, and moral instruction can be broken down into a more easily digestible manner.

For our newly initiated and current 32° Masters of the Royal Secret, please join us for our classroom lecture series;

  • Saturday, May 13th, 2023 from 8am-5pm
  • Saturday, November 18th, 2023 from 8am-5pm (Hosted at Orange Grove Lodge #293)

***Coffee, doughnuts, snacks, lunch, and refreshments provided at no cost, although RSVP is required*

Please RSVP to:

James McCallion, 32° KCCH
Director of Education

We’ve had long-term Scottish Rite brothers attend and state afterwards…

“I wish the material was explained in this way back when we were going through the degrees; It just makes so much more sense and really ties everything together.”

“After attending the Classroom Lecture series, it’s like my mind is on fire; I can’t stop thinking about all the esoteric connections between the philosophy of the craft symbolism and the application of their instruction to my daily life. It’s transformative.”

While others have gone on to say that…

“This lecture series really helped me have the confidence to pursue and better understand the Master Craftsman Education Programs.”

“When I attend lodge & valley meetings, I can’t help but feel a richer, and more deeper appreciation for, and a connection with the intended design of the Scottish Rite experience. This education has made me a better Mason.”

Are you ready to see how far the rabbit-hole goes?
