Welcome from the Provincial Grand Master

I am delighted to welcome you to our website where I hope you will find much interest in matters relating to the Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Degrees in Leicestershire & Rutland.


Once again our Masonic meetings are suspended because of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it looks likely that it may remain that way into the new year. In the meantime I wish you, our Brethren and your families good health and look forward to the pleasure of your company in due course, and I especially look forward to your support when we can eventually resume our meetings in full to ensure that the Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Degrees in our Province remain as strong as ever despite the challenges that still lie ahead in getting back to normality in 2021.


The Mark Degree is the third largest in English Freemasonry and enjoys excellent working relations with the Craft and Royal Arch. Just as in olden times the Mark should be viewed as an essential step in a Freemason’s progression. Membership of the Mark Degree is open to all Craft brethren who have been Master Masons for at least four weeks. Full details of the Mark and the Royal Ark Mariner Degrees are available in leaflet format within the website. In addition you can browse both the latest, and all the back issues, of the ‘Magic of the Mark’ magazine containing interesting news on Mark and Royal Ark Mariner events and happenings in the Province. Copies of various documents to assist Secretaries and Scribes are available on the ‘Downloads’ page.


Please stay safe and most especially, look after yourself, your families and friends.


Sincerely and fraternally


Phillip J. Mann
