The Royal Ark Mariner
Degree commemorates the providence and mercy of God and relates to
the legend of the deluge. The teachings of the Degree emphasize the
importance of the family strengths and the need for each member of
society to play his part for the benefit of all. The ritual teaches
that out of chaos and catastrophe mankind can survive and that we
should face adversity together, helping to look after those less
fortunate than ourselves.
