    Last night I, along with 6 others, received the Mark Master Mason Degree from Lansdale Chapter no. 301.

    We were all very impressed with the Degree Ritual and it does give one a lot to think about. I was impressed that essentially all of the Brothers from my Blue Lodge that I look up to and hold in high esteem were there and taking part in the degree conferral.

    The biggest thing that blew me away was that among the 6 other brothers receiving the Degree was the DDGM from our Masonic District. Apparently he never felt he had the time to take part in York Rite but was moved to join at this time.

    Very much looking forward to the rest of the Holy Royal Arch Chapter Degrees. Especially the Royal Arch Mason Degree which my Chapter will be conferring in September at the George Washington Masonic Memorial in Alexandria, VA. They have set up a bus trip to tour the Memorial, confer the degree there, then have lunch and do some sightseeing in Washington, DC.

    Awesome !

    So in PA - MMM and HRA work within the same system.. hmmm... of course they would.

    Things are different here - we don't really think about "York Rite". We have a peak body of MMMs and we have another peak body for HRA with the MMM being considered an extension of the 2nd degree and HRA either an extension of the 3rd, but often described as its completion. Here, it is said (and written) Freemasonry consists of 5 Degrees being EA, FC, MM, MMM and the Supreme Order of the Holy Royal Arch.

    After 15 years as a Freemason, PM x 3, (and sec for one lodge and Director of Ceremonies in another ) I've finally decided to join Chapter. It is done in two parts here, the advancement and the exultation. Meeting every two months and with an installation later in the year, I will become a Companion in Dec - if they vote me in :)

    Congratulations. Mark Master is my favorite degree in all of Masonry because of the lessons it teaches.
    Don't take credit for something you didn't do. Don't agree to something and then complain about it. Don't be jealous of what someone else has.
