    I'm getting my Fellow Craft in second friday of next month. I'm excited about this level up that I'm going to get. I have been EA for some good half a year and more and visited the lodge for some first degrees after that and I have always loved the athmosphere and the fellowship at the lodge but I have been really waiting for this next step of mine.

    FC is and should be a big deal. That was the primary degree held back in the day for most masons if I'm not mistaken. MMs were quite rare, I'm sure some of our historians can touch on that and clarify. You've been an outstanding forum member and it seems your lodge is lucky to have you.

    Congratulations, Im not sure of the diffrences in ritual but it will most likley be an intressting eavning.

    Prior to the 1720s the only degrees where EA and FC. MM is the younger of the three degrees.

    So its not just a principal degree, it was the last one.

    From the title of the forum I thought I was on a Super Mario Bros. site for a second. Or is that Super Mario Brethren?

    Congrats, I’m working hard for my second however I’m not sure when I will be doing that.
    In my jurisdiction you must have attended 12 meetings prior to being allowed to turn in your third however we meet once a month and obviously we have a number of brethren who also are working towards various degrees so the wait isn’t a predictable but for the most part it doesn’t matter in our jurisdiction.

    I have started to use leveling up in many situations. Graduating a new belt for my students, turning one more year, etc.. As a kid who grew up with Atari and Nintendo I think level up is a cool way to say we are moving on. :D

    I was JW for a FC degree last night. The lodge is preparing me to sit in the South next year. I think the FC degree is my favorite of the Symbolic Lodge Degrees. It is here that we learn what is required to be a Mason.
