Since 1883

Welcome to the Wichita Scottish Rite.

The Wichita Scottish Rite is the local body of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction. We are an advanced college of the Freemasons, expanding on the lessons of ethics, morals and philosophy. Based on these lessons we are active in philanthropy, social and cultural activities, community activities, civic activities and public education.

As Masons, we are a fraternal organization with many community-focused functions. Our routine meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Wichita Scottish Rite Center. See the Calendar for routine and special feasts, and for events and meetings.


The Calendars are current as of May 31, 2024.

As June 3rd, 2024 the WSR Office Hours will be by Appointment Only.

Due to budget cuts, we will be cutting office staff. I want to thank Dan Anderson, 32nd Degree, KCCH for his 5 years of service as Assistant General Secretary. Changes will take effect 6/3/24. If you need to contact the office, you can call 316-263-4218. If I am not in the office, it will roll over to my cell phone. If you need to come into the office, you will need to schedule a time. My email remains [email protected]. As we go along, there will be a few items that we can use volunteers for. I will be posting them later. Thank you.

Tony Nelzen, 33°, General Secretary

Our next planned function (at this point) is the Fall Reunion on 27 and 28 September.  Contact the office for current electronic petitions.

IF YOU WANT TO PLAN THE FUTURE OF WICHITA VALLEY - Contact the Personal Representative or General Secretary.

Calendars: There are TWO calendars - one for the Wichita Scottish Rite and general Masonic Community events, and one specifically for WSR Facilities.  All WSR-specific events including committee meetings, practices, club meetings, etc. are posted on the WSR and Masonic Community calendar.

LINKS: I have added 'Wichita TempleLive' and 'Amicus Illuminismi' to our links. FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN JOINING FREEMASONRY, SEE THE NEW LINK!
