Lodge Jose Rizal in the making

Finally, the brethren decided a name for a new Lodge, under the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory [UGL NSW & ACT] - that name is Lodge Jose Rizal, a name synomous with Filipinos, Freemansory and intellectuals.

The committee have also found a new home for the new lodge under District 32, and will be meeting at Castle Hill Masonic Centre, corner Showground and Old Northern Roads, Castle Hill.

Hermano Azman,

Thank you for that very important piece of information regarding a sister Lodge of the same under the GLNdF.

We know that aside from Lodges under the Grand Lodge of the Philippines, there is also a Jose Rizal Lodge under the auspices of the Grand Lodge of Cuba!

Our Bro Jose Rizal has indeed left his good mark, not only with our countrymen but also abroad.

With warm fraternal regards,

Bro Mario
