The venue


      There is a Masonic Ceremony Course scheduled this coming Saturday, 31 October from 9:00 AM till 1:00 PM. Venue is at the Bulli Masonic Centre, 286 Princes Highway, Bulli NSW 2516.

Please bring $20 which will go towards the cost of tea & coffee, certificate, and training materials.

Lunch will be at your own cost at the Leagues Club across the road.

I have attended this course three times and this time I will be attending again.

The course is coordinated by the Regional Education Officer for R11, VWBro Brian Mackander, OAM.

The Grand Lodge Demonstration Team headed by the Chairman of the Private Lodges Committer, RWBro Bruce Munro will be the course leader.

I strongly encourage & recommend this course to all the foundation members of the new Lodge Jose Lodge 1045 so that by the time the lodge will be consecrated, we all will be well versed with our degree works.

Brethren, kindly make time to attend this very important and enjoyable training course.

Interested brethren please send your name, lodge name, & contact phone to me.

Kind regards,

Rey Porras

Lodge Jose Rizal No 1045, UGL NSW & ACT

Worshipful Master -elect, VWBro Manny Maniago announced that VWBro Peter Court accepted [on behalf of UGL NSW & ACT] application of Lodge Jose Rizal for consecration in this jurisdiction.

As the application as a regular constituted lodge will have to go through further discussion with The United Grand Lodge of New South Wales & Australian Capital Territory's [UGL NSW & ACT] committee on new lodges; it was issued with number 1045.

Hopefully, come 30 January 2010 Lodge Jose Rizal will be officially known as Lodge Jose Rizal No 1045, UGL NSW & ACT.
