Welcome to the Oakland Scottish Rite’s Fraternal Website
As Freemasons, we seek to strengthen our Bay Area community by being men of integrity and good character and exalting the dignity of every person to live a civic life maximizing his service to humanity.
All Scottish Rite Masons are Freemasons. Of the 1.7 million Freemasons in the United States, approximately 550 thousand are Scottish Rite Masons. The Oakland Scottish Rite was built in 1883.
We strive to produce better and wiser men by providing opportunities to foster leadership skills and education based on the values of friendship, charity, patriotism, tolerance, integrity and a belief in a Supreme Being.
Scottish Rite Masons are civic minded and charitable men who are reluctant to identify themselves by their civic activities or their philanthropies. People are often surprised when they learn we’ve been treating children with language disorders in our clinic for decades. We are passionate about our community involvement.
We warmly welcome you to visit our Oakland Scottish Rite Fraternity situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Merritt.
