Beyond the Craft

Many brethren join other orders beyond the Craft, most commonly Royal Arch, Mark Master Masons, Rose Croix and Knights Templar. The Public Schools Lodges' Council has affiliated units in most side degrees open for brethren from member lodges to join. They are all strong and active units where brethren can learn and explore more secrets and mysteries of masonry. It is also a great way of meeting other brethren and making friendships. The units are shown below with meeting dates and venues along with the relevant secretaries who can be contacted by interested brethren. Where relevant entry criteria are also mentioned.
