Mark Master Masons & Royal Ark Mariners

The Grand Master’s Lodges of Instruction meet on the first and third Monday of each month, commencing with the Masonic season starting in September to March, at Mark Masons’ Hall (86 St. James’s Street, London SW1A 1PL). The Advancement and Elevation ceremonies are rehearsed at each meeting; with the Elevation ceremony starting at 5.00pm and the Advancement ceremony starting at 6.00pm. The Installation ceremonies for Mark and RAM are rehearsed once each month on alternate Mondays, and also when requested by the members to accommodate their individual schedule.

The instructions are given in a friendly and relaxed manner to an approved standard of ritual, to fit individual requirement and need. It is hoped that brethren will familiarise themselves with the ritual and attain an ability to deliver the ritual with confidence, in a competent manner and style, worthy of note. Regalia is not worn for the GM’s LoI, but smart casual dress is a requirement at MMH (no jeans or trainers!).

The Lodges of Instructions’ season culminates with the Annual Festival, at which the Advancement and Elevation ceremonies are demonstrated, and it is usually held during the last week in April, on a date and at a venue mutually agreed by the GM’s LoI’s committee and also the committee of the host Mark Province.

The names of the Committee are shown below. They are all very willing and eager to support and assist attendees in their individual requirements and the specific Offices that they wish to undertake in their own Lodges.
