What We Do
"Human progress is our cause, liberty of thought our supreme wish, freedom of conscience our mission, and the guarantee of equal rights to all people everywhere our ultimate goal." - Scottish Rite Creed
We aim to provide a venue for Freemasons in the Washington, DC metropolitan area to enjoy fellowship among men and brothers with common ideals; to learn and teach, and develop a deeper understanding of Masonic philosophy, and what it means to be a good man and citizen.
From the Secretary - Current Notice
Summer Recess has ended, and I trust you all enjoyed your summer break from your Masonic duties. The Valley has several programs and events scheduled this Fall, to include Tough Mudder in late September, Feast of Tishri in October, and our Fall Reunion on November 7th & 8th. Welcome Back and I look forward to seeing you back at the Rite. Our first meeting will be the Mithras Lodge of Perfection meeting next Tuesday, September 2nd. The evening's program will be "Science Fiction: Finding Masonry in Strange Places...". Dinner will be served starting at 6:15 pm, and Mithras Lodge will open for business at 7:30 pm.

Tough Mudder, the teamwork and endurance event featuring a 10-12 mile military style obstacle course, is coming to our area on September 27, 2014, with the Capital Region event taking place in Gerrardstown, WV.
