New Lodge launched in double quick time

The Mark Internet Lodge got off to a cracking start on Saturday 4th June.

The Consecration ceremony in Mark Masons Hall in London was presided over by RW Derek Thomas, our PGM.  To assist him there were 3 other PGMs including RW Eirian Jones who has very recently become the PGM for the Mark Province of South Wales.

Nearly all the Founders were there.  Some of those who were not had the excuse of living on the other side of the world.  Such as in Brazil!

We also had a good number of Joiners.

The website, www.themarkinternetlodge.online is currently under construction.  The holding page gives an outline of why Brethren should join.   To see these reasons simply go to the site homepage.

We hope to launch the web site in the near future, and will include more photographs of the day.

Father & Son join Mark Masonry at Torfaen in a very special ceremony

 

Father and son, Brothers Stephen Quick 07/06/58 and Andrew Quick 30/5/83,  Master Masons of Isca Lodge No.683, joined Torfaen MMM Lodge No. 796 at a meeting on 25th May.

Not only was it special in that it was a father and son joining at the same time in a double ceremony, but there was something else that was quite unusual.

Even though the Lodge has a good membership, the secretary Craig Allford, found that the both Wardens were unable to make this particular meeting.

Undaunted, and having heard the PGM say that he would help, if he could, Craig contacted him.

True to his word RW Bro Derek went to the meeting and acted as Senior Warden to make the meeting a truly unique event, and a happy time was had by all.
