Calling All Masons!

The 2019 Spring Reunion of the Valley of Santa Fe will extend from May 3rd through May 5th this year and the Valley of Santa Fe earnestly requests that all Scottish Rite Masons attend this reunion to welcome a brand new class of Scottish Rite Freemasons to the fraternity.

The 2019 Spring Reunion class is named the Illustrious Benjamin “Bill” Friedman, 33° IGH Class in honor of one of the guiding lights of Freemasonry in Santa Fe. Bill Friedman lived a life of service to his community and to his country and was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather.

Over the weekend of May 3rd through May 5th, the Valley of Santa Fe will confer and communicate the 4th through the 32nd Scottish Rite Degrees. This reunion is one of two held by the Valley of Santa Fe during the year to initiate new Scottish Rite Freemasons.

The lessons imparted in the Scottish Rite Degrees are timeless and universal throughout all mankind and the manner in which they are conferred in the Santa Fe Scottish Rite Temple is nothing short of mystical. Very few Scottish Rite Valleys confer as many degrees as the Valley of Santa Fe and even fewer can perform the degrees in a century-old theatre with their original sets and costumes. It is truly a unique opportunity and something that every Scottish Rite Freemason should experience.

All Master Masons in good standing are eligible and welcome to receive the Scottish Rite Degrees. To request a petition for the Degrees, please contact Secretary José Montaño by e-mail at secretary@nmscottishrite.org or by phone at (505) 982-4414.

If you aren’t a Mason yet you can find out how to become one at the Grand Lodge of New Mexico’s website www.nmmasons.org. We look forward to having you join us.
