Joining The RAM Degree

Why Join a Royal Ark Mariner Lodge in Spain?

All Brethren who are Mark Master Masons are eligible to join the Ancient and Honourable Fraternity of Royal Ark Mariners.
A Royal Ark Mariner Lodge is 'moored' to a Mark Lodge and carries the same Lodge number but is separate in every other way. Unfortunately, at the present time not all Mark Lodges have a RAM Lodge attached to it therefore 14 Royal Ark Mariner Lodges exist within the District of Spain.

The locations of these Lodges can be found elsewhere on the website.
Dependant on the tradition of the individual Lodges, mostly are conducted in the English language although there are a number of Lodges where the ritual in the Spanish language is encouraged and undertaken.

How to Join a Royal Ark Mariner Lodge in Spain

If you decide to join Royal Ark Masonry in the District of Spain, and we sincerely hope that you will, you should first contact the Secretary of a Royal Ark Mariner's Lodge near you, or alternatively contact the District Secretary who will advise and help in putting you in touch with a RAM Lodge.
Once contact is made with a Lodge, you will also need to complete an application form which can be downloaded from this website.

You will then be asked by the Lodge Secretary to produce your Mark Grand Lodge Certificate and a clearance certificate from your Lodge will need to be produced and the details of the Lodge in which you were advanced given on the application form. 

You will then be proposed, seconded and balloted for in open Lodge in the same way as in the Mark degree. The ballot proving in your favour the Elevation ceremony can proceed and you will become a member of this Ancient and Honourable Fraternity of Royal Ark Mariners.
For more information, or if you have any questions, contact the District Secretary.
