Salve Fraters!

     The Orange County Valley Scottish Rite hosts a monthly Online Master Craftsman Study Group. This is your opportunity to learn the rich history, symbolism, and philosophy of the Craft, and a chance to participate in true Masonic scholarship with your brothers.

Study sessions will be held via zoom. Once brothers have RSVP’d to our class, study session correspondence with dates/times and Zoom links, etc. will be emailed to the group. While participants will have to read the material ahead of time, we intend to progress with these online quizzes together, reviewing our conclusions, discussing rabbit-holes, and completing each section. 

     The Master Craftsman’s “by-mail correspondence course,” has been discontinued. Supreme Council has now created a digital version of these programs online. 

Each participant is required create an online account, enroll in a course, fulfill the assigned reading from its respective textbook, and complete its corresponding quiz through the online college portal. Upon successful completion of each course, the participant will receive a certificate and a lapel pin specific to the course completed.
