Mission and Vision - Lodge Jose Rizal


To unite with the Grandmaster in promoting Freemasonry as being at the heart of life.


To use the vehicle of a lodge founded primarily by, but not limited to Filipino masons to:

- Provide a place where the ideals of Freemasonry are practised and guarded and ultimately lead to the development of good citizens of Australia.

- Achieve excellence in the performance of the rituals and charges practiced under the constitution of the United Grand Lodge of NSW & ACT.

- Enrich the education of masons by practices such as the exemplification of the rituals of the constitution of the Grand Lodge of the Philippines.

- Demonstrate to the wider community that Freemasonry is an organization of excellence and value.

- Actively dispel and refute the fallacies that are attributed to the fraternity through malice or lack of information.

Our members are made of "... friends and brothers, among whom no contention should ever exist, but that noble contention, or rather emulation, of who best can work and best agree."

"Brotherly Love, Relief & Truth"

I love the fact that you have a statement or declaration of what your lodge is about. A lot of it deals with your internal qualities within the organisation - what would be really good to see in this is some statement which provides a milestone for how you will engage with the wider non-masonic community.

If you need any help on getting some ideas - take a look at the Lodge Southern Cross website at or contact me through Peter Court.

Regards and congratulations

Fraternal greetings brother,

A similar undertaking has been recently done in Chicago Illinois with the formation of the "Silangan Commandery 93", which recently received its charter.

Keep up the good work.
