J. S. Sutton # 3

Knights of Pythagoras

 

 

 

MISSION STATEMENT

 

The Supreme Council order of the Knights of Pythagoras is a youth organization dedicated to "The fatherhood of God and the Universal Brotherhood of Man."  Our organization takes young boys between the ages of nine and eighteen and helps to develop them into young men.  We promote family values, provide educational scholarships and play a significant role in the uplifting of humanity.

 

BRIEF HISTORY

 

Pythagoras was a Greek philosopher or student of knowledge who lived about 2,500 years ago.  He worked in the fields of music and geometry.  he founded the Pythagorean brotherhood, a group of his followers whose briefs and ideas were rediscovered during the Renaissance.  He contributed to the development of mathematics and Western Rational Philosophy.

 

Among the basic tenants of the Pythagorean are the beliefs that reality, at it's deepest level, is mathematical in nature; that philosophy can be used for spiritual purification; that the soul can rise to union with the divine; and that certain symbols have a mystical significance.

 

The Knights of Pythagoras in San Antonio was named after  J. S. Sutton.  It gave tribute to the family who served a major roll in our community in education, business and government in the past as well as present.  In 1948, the family was the first African American family to be elected to public office in the south since the reconstruction.  J. S. Sutton, the father opened a skating rink in 1888.  He founded Carter-Sutton Funeral Home in the early 1890s with O. J. Carter and a Mattress Factory in 1933, a few contributions the Sutton Family made in San Antonio, Texas.
