Our Mission

It is the mission of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction, to improve its members and enhance the communities in which they live by teaching and emulating the principles of Brotherly Love, Tolerance, Charity, and Truth, while actively embracing high social, moral, and spiritual values, including fellowship, compassion, and dedication to God, family, and country.

— Scottish Rite Mission Statement

Man is not to be comprehended as a starting-point, or progress as a goal, without those two great forces, Faith and Love.
— Albert Pike, 33º
