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 Scottish Rite Masons 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.

Feast of Tishri

DCSR SMS Group
Another new innovation for the Valley is the establishment of an SMS broadcast system to provide instantaneous information regarding crucial events such as cancellations or closures of the DCSR facilities to those of our members who have mobile telephones, and opt-in to accept this service. You may enroll by texting the letters DCSR to 80123, or by entering the information requested below, and clicking Subscribe.
VMAP is designed to provide every Scottish Rite candidate, member, and leader in the Southern Jurisdiction with a useful working tool for planning and promoting a well-rounded series of Valley activities to engage and involve every member in the life and work of their Valley. In other words, VMAP is designed to help every Valley provide its members with a superior Scottish Rite experience.
VMAP was created entirely by the Scottish Rite Brethren who attended and participated in the 2014 Scottish Rite Regional Leadership Workshops. As a participating Valley, we execute the project by completing specific activities in ten separate subject areas that cover the full spectrum of the Scottish Rite experience.
