Philadelphia Lodge of Installed Mark Masters No 1646
Philadelphia Mark Lodge, was consecrated on Monday 11th January 1988 with at total of 46 Founders. It now meets in January (Installation) and October at Preston Masonic Hall, Saul Street, Preston, PR1 2QU.
The Lodge was formed for the purpose of furthering the interests of the Order by:
Providing a meeting place for Newly installed and Past Masters from every part of the province.
The founders stated that:
1. It is hoped that this Lodge will maintain the enthusiasm and interest of those Past Masters who have
  not yet been appointed to Provincial Rank.
2. It is hoped that the Lodge will give the opportunity for Newly installed and Past Masters, just out of the Chair, to continue their Mark Masonry in a new environment and broaden their knowledge and experience of our Order.
We have over 80 members who enjoy a warm friendship and camaraderie with a commitment to ensure that the Lodge continues to prosper and develop.
The Lodge is privileged to participate in the organisation of the Provincial meeting in May.
