Why Join

The Mark Internet Lodge was Consecrated on 4th June 2016 at Mark Mason's Hall, St James' Street, London after a small group of interested Mark Mason's from the Mark Masonic Province of Monmouthshire , led by The Provincial Grand Master sought to discuss the idea with The Deputy Grand Secretary in London. All felt that the time was right for a step forward into the computer age.

Whilst It is early days for this exciting project we intend to push the boundaries of our administrative routines to assess how far technology can assist us in our everyday Lodge management.
