A Hearty Free State Fraternal Welcome!
Welcome to the online home of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons in Maryland! On behalf of the more than 1,500 Companions of the Royal Arch, we invite you to read and learn about our mission, our work, and the opportunities for you to receive further light in Freemasonry.

The Grand Chapter is part of four Masonic bodies making up what we call the York Rite of Freemasonry (sometimes called the American Rite). The first is the Grand Lodge Ancient Free and Accepted Masons. The second is the Grand Chapter. The third is the Grand Council of Royal and Select Masters. The fourth is the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar.

Together, the York Rite bodies work to further the lessons and teaching of the first three degrees of Freemasonry.
