Morals and Dogma

“That which causes us trials shall yield us triumph: and that which make our hearts ache shall fill us with gladness. The only true happiness is to learn, to advance, and to improve: which could not happen unless we had commenced with error, ignorance, and imperfection. We must pass through the darkness, to reach the light.”

History of the Austin Valley Scottish Rite

Illuminating the Capital City

The Austin Valley Scottish Rite has a rich history dating back to 1839, when five commissioners were appointed by the Third Congress of the Republic of Texas to select a permanent site for the capital of the young nation. The new town was named Austin, and by October, 1839, building sufficient to house the government were completed and the small town became the capital city of Texas. Soon some 11,500 inhabitants surrounded the governmental complex as continuous growth was virtually assured. Austin received Scottish Rite Masonry on November 26, 1881, when Fidelity Lodge of Perfection No. 4 was activated. Grand Commander Albert Pike visited Texas in 1881, and by 1885 the town had 18,000 citizens, a number of whom were Master Masons.
