Scottish Rite Masons in Maryland have been carrying the banner since 1886!
Welcome to the Orient of Maryland, Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, PHA, Southern Jurisdiction. We are happy of your interest in pursuing more Knowledge in Freemasonry through the oldest Masonic Rite known as Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite. Many prominent Masons took these same steps to enhance their understanding of Ancient Craft, and soon, you will be counted in that number.
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite is considered the College of Freemasonry, and for good reason. The first three Degrees of Ancient Craft serve as the foundation and apex of Freemasonry, but just as one graduates from high school, he may consider higher education such as college. The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite provides that opportunity. The focus is not solely on ritual proficiency, instead Scottish RIte Masons are invested in the philosophies of Freemasonry and how to apply the lessons obtained therein to their daily lives.
Take a moment to acquaint yourself with Prince Hall Scottish Rite and hopefully, you will take the next steps in your Masonic career. I look forward to seeing you join the oldest Rite in Freemasonry.
