H. JACK YOST, 33°

      SGIG in West Virginia       

 

Welcome to the Charleston, West Virginia Scottish Rite Webpage.

 

There are Thirty-Three Active members (called SGIG's) of the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry for the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States.  In addition to the Thirty-three Inpectors General in the Supreme Council, all the other States or Orients in theSouthern Jurisdiction, which are not represented by Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, have Deputies to the Supreme Council, appointed by the Sovereign Grand Commander, the operational head of the Supreme Council structure. I have been elected by the Supreme Council to be the SGIG in West Virginia.

 

My responsibilities include being  in charge of the operations of Scottish Rite Masonry in West Virginia.

 

There are approximately half a million members in the Scottish Rite (Southern Jurisdiction) in the United States and approximately ten thousand members in West Virginia of which Charleston’s membership is in the three thousand range.

 

The Orient of West Virginia’s membership are attached to nine different Valleys or locations.  We have Valleys in Bluefield, Charleston, Clarksburg, Huntington, Logan, Martinsburg, Morgantown, Parkersburg and Wheeling.

 

If you are a Master Mason, you are most welcome to continue your Masonic career by joining our Scottish Rite membership.  Ask any Scottish Rite member or call your local Scottish Rite office.  The Charleston office may be reached toll free by dialing 800-445-7833.

 

I wish you all the best and hope you find it easy to find information you might be seeking on our Webpage.
