Provincial Grand Master
R.W.Bro. Ronald Jones JP
A warm welcome to the website of the Mark Province of Dyfed which covers the three Counties of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.
We hope that this website will be of interest to not only Freemasons but also to those merely intrigued.
The Mark Degree in Freemasonry, which greatly enhances the Craft Masons’ understanding of operative masonry, has been practised in the three counties for many years with our oldest Mark Lodge being established in 1870.
We currently have 12 Mark Lodges and 6 Royal Ark Mariner Lodges meeting at various centres throughout the Province.
The Province is governed by the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons of England and Wales and its Districts and Lodges Overseas and is presided over by the Provincial Grand Master Right Worshipful Brother Ronald Jones and assisted by the Deputy Provincial Grand Master Very Worshipful Brother Gareth R Hicks.
The Province is very active bringing much pleasure and friendship to all its members . It is known by its members as the “Friendly Degree”.
The Mark Degree promotes Charity with the Mark Grand Charity making very considerable contributions to major National and International worthy causes.
The Province and individual Lodges also make donations to meet many Local needs.
We hope that this site will be a stimulus to Craft Masons’ to seek further insight into Freemasonry and the Mark Degree in particular.
