    Brothers. I am so proud to announce that after 4 years since being raised, I was finally able to take the Mark Master Mason Degree of the York Rite. A big thank you to the Brothers and Companions of Joseph Andrews Chapter #46 R.A.M, West Haven, CT for a profound, and well executed degree. I am indeed honored to have come across the keystone and hope to do you all justice in the quarry!

    Brother Marv

    Congratulations. This is my favorite degree. The lessons taught in it are sold gold that everyone should live their lives by.

    Fantastic degree, great lessons inculcated in this degree. I have read that it may be one of the oldest in Masonry, one of the original craft degree''s, not saying this is correct, but it'seems an interesting thought.

    I understand that you have to have completed this degree to be considered a Master Mason in UGLE. Not sure about this though.

    I think that's the Royal Arch, not sure if it is still the case but I believe it used to be that way

    Perhaps one of the UGLE brethren will weigh in on this, but I believe this is a myth.

    No, that is not accurate. Now, it may stand in the way of Provincial Honours (it would in my province), but that is a different issue.

    Yep, as Bro Glen says, it's bunk. Do your three Degrees and your are a MM.

    GLoS, you must be a MM before you can progress to the MMM degree. From what I understand, it used to be part of the 2nd, (the candidate is still portraying a FC when undergoing the degree), but now it is appended after the MM. I have been told that I can now join the RA if I choose, but have to have been a MMM for a year before doing so.

    Received MMM and VPM degrees last night. It was a lot of fun. Apparently I caused a bit of a ruckus!
