Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite


Greetings and welcome to our website. On behalf of the officers and membership of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite – Valley of Youngstown, Ohio. We hope that you take a moment to browse our site and find out what Scottish Rite Masonry is all about.

Freemasonry is dedicated to making good men better. It focuses on the individual man, strengthening his character, improving his moral and spiritual outlook, and broadening his mental horizons. Freemasonry impresses upon the minds of its members the principles of personal responsibility and morality, encouraging each member to practice in his daily life the lessons taught through symbolic degrees. One of the universal doctrines of Freemasonry is the belief in the “Brotherhood of Man and the Fatherhood of God.” The importance of this belief is established by each Mason as he practices the three principal tenets of Masonry: Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.

Our Vision
“We will strive to be a fraternity that fulfills our Masonic obligation to care for our members.”

Our Mission,
Provide Inspiration for our members through meaningful programs and degrees.
Provide Convenient opportunities for our members to enhance their lives.
Provide Enjoyable programs and fellowship activities for our members.

The Core Values of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite are: Reverence for God, Integrity, Justice, Tolerance, Devotion to Country and Humanity.

The Scottish Rite of Freemasonry is an extension of the first three degrees of Craft Freemasonry. Here the member witnesses’ degrees from the 4° through the 32°. Each degree provides a moral lesson that can help the member be a better person. The Valley of Youngstown draws members of the Craft Lodges from Trumbull, Mahoning, and Columbiana counties of Ohio.

All Bodies of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite – Valley of Youngstown acknowledge and yield allegiance to the Supreme Council, Thirty-Third Degree, Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry for the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States of America whose Grand East is in Lexington, Massachusetts of which Ill. David A. Glattly, 33°, is the Sovereign Grand Commander.

Six Valley Degree Day has a wonderful turnout in Canton!

The Six Valley Degree Day was held in Canton, OH on Saturday, January 28th, 2023.  Scottish Rite Freemasons from all over the state were in attendance to witness the six degrees performed.  Every degree was beautifully done by their respective valleys.  The Valley of Youngstown portrayed the 21st degree in such a remarkable fashion, many positive comments were made afterwards about the work.  The Valley of Youngstown can hold their head high!  If you missed this performance of the 21st degree, you can still catch it , along with many others, at the Scottish Rite Reunion, April 28th-29th (See the Events tab for times).

Valley of Youngstown donates $1,500 to local charity, Elisa’s Entourage!

The Valley of Youngstown recently donated $1,500 to Elisa’s Entourage! Their goal is to maintain a bigger reach in the Down Syndrome and special needs community. They have raised more than $100,000 to benefit the Down Syndrome Association of our own Mahoning Valley! The Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite was more than happy to donate to this wonderful cause.

Scottish Rite Hockey Night was a great success!

On January 8th, Scottish Rite took it to the ice!  With seats right up against the glass, there was non-stop action at the Covelli Center watching our beloved Youngstown Phantoms.  In addition to our Scottish Rite members, we had an opportunity to meet 12 Master Masons in fellowship as well. From the food to the action on the ice, the entire event was a great success.  Special thanks to Illustrious brother Zel Bush (Membership Commitee Chairman), and Brother Dan Bradaick for organizing a wonderful masonic evening.
