Turnover and Unveiling of Oil in Canvas Portrait of our brethren Dr. Jose P. Rizal

June 7, 2023,
Calamba City in the province of Laguna.

The Brothers of The Muy Respetable Gran Logia Soberana del Archipielago Filipino (GLSdAF) under the leadership of the Muy Respetable Gran Maestre Felipe L. Navarro Jr. 33° have added a valuable mark in Philippine Freemason history.

“What can a brother do to another brother aside from showing respect is to give honor and timeless recognition as a true blooded hermano mason”

These are the values that have motivated the Soberana Mason Brothers of GLSdAF Valle de Laguna headed by their soon to be District Deputy Grand Master (DDGM) and currently the Venerable Maestre of Resp∴ Logia Makiling Nu. 18 Hno. Christian Villaester Maristela 18°.

With the joint efforts of all the Brethren from the 5 symbolic lodges under GLSdAF Valle de Laguna supported by their respective Worshipful Masters and officers made this honorable initiative a success by donating an Oil in Canvas Portrait of our beloved National Hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal representing himself as Freemason.

The portrait unveiling has been graced inside the Jose Rizal Shrine and Museum office in Calamba City, Laguna by the honorable Calamba City Mayor Roseller “Ross” H. Rizal together with the GLSdAF Most Worshipful Grand Master Felipe Navarro Jr. 33°, IPB Victor Raquipiso 33°, IPB John Ritchie Jongco 33°, IPB Juan Carlos Guison Simborio IV 33°, Worshipful Master Christian Maristela 18° (DDGM incoming) and all the Brothers of GLSdAF Valle de Laguna. With indulgence of Jose Rizal Shrine and Museum Curator Mr. Derrick Villa.

This historical initiative spearheaded by Logia Makiling’s Senior Warden Hno. Phillip Carlos Bautista 4° and Junior Warden Hno. Michael Dela Cruz 4° will leave a monumental knowledge for all the constituents of Calamba City that our National Hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal also know to us as Hermano Dimasalang is a proud Freemason.
