DNC Shines at Global Congress


June 21, 2024, marked a significant day for the DeMolay National Congress of the Philippines as it made its presence felt at the International Congress Session in Phoenix, Arizona. The session was graced by the attendance of NMC Fred Atanacio and NSC Joaquin Echeverria, along with Brother Adrian Mason Manlulu of Gen. Douglas MacArthur Chapter No. 12, who served as the official delegates of the Philippines.

NMC Fred, in particular, was a standout, attracting the attention of DeMolays from various jurisdictions. They were keen to learn about his platforms and vision should he be elected as the International Congress Secretary. His charisma and leadership potential were evident, making a strong case for his candidacy.

The delegation also had the opportunity to meet with key figures, including International Congress Secretary River Peatman and DeMolay International Grand Master Terry L. Peters, who also holds the honorary title of Past Grand Master in DeMolay Philippines. These meetings underscored the strong international ties and camaraderie within the DeMolay community.

The attendance of the Philippine delegates at the opening and business sessions of the International Congress Session highlights the active participation of DeMolay Philippines in the global DeMolay movement. It is a testament to the organization’s commitment to fostering international relations and contributing to the growth and development of DeMolay on a global scale.

As the session continues, the eyes of the DeMolay world are on Phoenix, Arizona, where the future of the organization is being shaped by dedicated members like NMC Fred, NSC Joaquin, and Brother Adrian. Their involvement and the interactions with international leaders promise to enrich the DeMolay experience for members worldwide.
