GM Mendoza Visits DeMolay Canada


On July 2, 2024, in Los Angeles, California, Honorable Grand Master Raymund Joseph Ian “Raji” O. Mendoza of DeMolay Philippines will initiate a landmark journey northward. This trip will culminate in a meeting with the respected members of DeMolay Canada, signifying the inaugural official visit of a Grand Master from DeMolay Philippines to their jurisdiction. This event highlights the strong fraternal ties that exist between different DeMolay jurisdictions.

DeMolay Canada, one of only five DeMolay Supreme Councils worldwide, is preparing to welcome GM Mendoza with the highest honors. This visit is not only a testament to the growing international collaboration within the DeMolay community but also an opportunity to strengthen the ties between the youth of different nations.

DeMolay Philippines extends its gratitude to Grand Standard Bearer Legionnaire Joy Flores for his companionship and support to GM Mendoza during his stay in the United States. His presence has been invaluable, especially during the leg of the trip that took them to Chicago, Illinois.

The visit of GM Mendoza to DeMolay Canada is a proud moment for the DeMolay community. It symbolizes the organization’s commitment to its mission of building and empowering young men through its time-honored principles and values. DeMolay, with its motto “Portals of Our Youth in Raising Better Men,” continues to open doors for its members, fostering leadership, character, and citizenship in a global context.

As GM Mendoza’s visit approaches, the anticipation grows among the members of both jurisdictions. This meeting of minds and hearts promises to be a memorable event that will leave a lasting impact on the youth of today, who are the leaders of tomorrow.

Stay tuned for more updates on this historic visit and the collaborative initiatives that will surely emerge from this international gathering of DeMolay brethren.
