University of Free Masonry – Degree Reading
Our University of Free Masonry degree readings are designed to allow for greater study and interpretation of the lessons taught in our Scottish Rite degrees. The readings last approximately one hour and use “Bridge to Light” and “Scottish Rite Ritual, Monitor and Guide” as supplemental sources of study. The next one is the 7th Degree Provost and Judge and will be held on February 26th at 7:00 pm in the Blue Lodge Room.
Provost and Judge
We learn that impartial justice protects person, property, happiness and reputation. We are instructed to judge with patience and impartially. The apron of the 7th degree is white, edged with red, with a key and five rosettes. The jewel is a golden key.
