The Northern and Southern Scottish Rite Jurisidictions in the United States confer the Fourth (4th) through the Thirty-third (33rd) degrees. The degrees are one-act plays, staged with costume, scenery, and special effects. The Fourth (4th) throught the Thirty-second (32) degrees are conferred at Scottish Rite Reunions; these reunions are usually held twice a year, one in the spring and one in the fall. These gatherings are termed Reunion as they are a reuniting of the members after a period of separation. The days of the Reunion are rich in comradeship, fellowship, and hard work. We also make a time to share the lessons of the Scottish Rite Degrees.
