The Mark degree is the third largest Order in Freemasonry and concerns the master stonemasons who built King Solomon’s temple.
The Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons was founded in 1856 and is administered from Mark Masons’ Hall in St. James’s, London. The Grand Master is HRH Prince Michael of Kent.
All brethren are eligible to become a Mark Master Mason as soon as they become a Master Mason in the Craft. If you want to expand your Masonic experience, and become involved in a wider Masonic brotherhood, then joining Mark is an excellent way of doing this. The members regard it as a friendly degree, that is not to say other Orders are not friendly, far from it, but rather that this Degree does have a relaxed and happy feel to it and encourages friendliness. Each Mark Lodge meets three times per year.
In Bedfordshire, there are nine Mark Lodges, covering Ampthill, Bedford, Biggleswade, Dunstable and Luton. Details of each lodge including contact information can be found in the Bedfordshire Freemasons Year Book or by visiting our Provincial website.
If you are undecided why not attend one of the Mark Awareness evenings as advertised on our Provincial website which will provide you with more information and answer any questions you may have.
