The powers of the Worshipful Master are very great. Once the Worshipful Master makes a decision, there can be no appeal to the lodge. He answers only to the Grand Lodge for his actions taken growing out of his official duties. The Worshipful Master has the right and duty to bar from entrance, or remove from the Lodge any brother that may be in a condition that is not appropriate behavior for a Mason. The Worshipful Master regulates discussion within the Lodge and can call an end to debate whenever he sees fit. Once a Master Mason has served as the Worshipful Master, he may wear the Past Master Ring or the Master Mason Ring. The Top Hat and Gavel shown on the Past Master Ring shown above are emblems indicative of the Past Master.
