Massachusetts Chapter of the Knights Ecossais of St. Andrew is a service organization chartered under Massachusetts Consistory in the Valley of Boston. 
​Our purpose is to serve the members of the Scottish Rite and have a lot of fun doing it!

Membership is open to all 32º Scottish Rite Masons who have not received the Meritorious Service Award(MSA).
We have two major events each year: The Banquet of Bannockburn, on or near June 23rd; and the Feast of St. Andrew on or near November 30th. We induct our newest Knights at these events. On the more social side, we hold casual events that we call "Knights night out". These events range from beer tasting at the Harpoon Brewery to a spectacular night of entertainment at the North Shore Music Theatre. We hold these events as a way to introduce our membership and their families to one another and to enjoy each others company.  

We serve the members of the Valley of Boston in many capacities. We perform duties such as greeters, tylers, ushers, and registrars. All members are welcome to participate! The enthusiasm of newly initiated members makes the Knights of St. Andrew one of the Valley of Boston’s most active and enjoyable organizations. It is an excellent way to nurture and develop future leaders as they learn their organizational and leadership skills, explore the inner structures of the Scottish Rite, and gain a deeper admiration for our Order and Brethren who work in Freemasonry as a whole!
