For over two centuries the Scottish Rite has been the medium for many Master Masons to reflect on their understanding of their relationship in their faith, to their fellow man and themselves. It enables Master masons to add to their Masonic knowledge and to witness colourful Scottish Rite 'degrees' which are dramatic presentations portraying the philosophy of Freemasonry. The Scottish Rite (ritual) delves further into Masonic teachings and is meant to provide more insight into living amore meaningful way of life for a Master Mason and his family. It also includes enjoying the friendships and associating with a larger and wider cross-section of like-minded men and their families.

In Canada the Scottish Rite, through their Scottish Rite Charitable Foundation, provides generous research grants and bursaries toward the finding of causes, prevention and treatment of all forms of dementia and mental incapacities including Alzheimer's Disease.

York Rite Freemasonry

The York Rite gives an elaboration on teachings of the Masonic Lodge. This Rite is divided into several bodies including Holy Royal Arch, and the Preceptory.

The Holy Royal Arch

On your journey through the three degrees of Masonry, you would have learned the proficiency lecture for each degree. Many questions would have arisen concerning the meaning of the ceremonies, the historical implications and the 'why' of the legends of Freemasonry. Most students of Freemasonry agree that the story of the Craft as presented in the three degrees is incomplete and that the degrees offered in the Holy Royal Arch of the York Rite of Freemasonry complete the story and answer many of the questions in the mind of the newly made Master Mason. In the Holy Royal Arch of Jerusalem is found the essentials of symbolism and philosophy necessary for a Master Mason to understand that which he has received.

The Knights Templar is an Order formed in 1118. Their mission was to protect travelers on the roads to the Holy Land. In short order the Templars blossomed to a very large organization.
