Welcome to the website of the Valley of South Bend, Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite. The Scottish Rite looks to continue the journey in Masonic knowledge over the course of twenty-nine degrees which are a continuation of the first three degrees of Blue Lodge. Though we meet in a class or we call a “reunion” setting which allows multiple brethren to witness the degrees, the experience garnered is indeed left to the individual to meditate on and understand how it fits into his current path.
As you traverse the website you will find several areas that may catch your interest. In the area of Guilds, we have four that range from hospitality and fellowship to sporting and education. We have these guilds and also attempt to travel through our Valleys forty-four lodges to better involve our membership, and in essence try to fulfill the ICE concept, which is to Inspire with our degrees, make the Valley as convenient as possible to our membership, and most importantly….have FUN.
