MW Romeo S. Momo, Grand Master of Masons, showed his full support to the Order of DeMolay by becoming an elite member of the Grand Master’s Centennial Knight and a Life Member of the Supreme Council, Order of DeMolay.
The Grand Master’s Centennial Knight is part of the DeMolay Crusades, which are once-in-a-lifetime membership categories offered for a limited period to a select group of individuals and organizations, who champion the worthy cause of character building and leadership development among the youth and are willing to make an investment to their future. The other membership categories are the Frank S. Land Centennial Fellows for Master Masons, Jacques DeMolay Centennial Fellows for Senior DeMolays, and Louis Gordon Lower Centennial Fellows for Active DeMolays. The DeMolay Crusades is one of the major projects and activities of the Supreme Council in support of the worldwide celebration of the 100th Year or Centennial Founding Anniversary of the International Order of DeMolay in March 2019.

Espejo, Immediate Past Grand Master, of the Supreme Council, Order of DeMolay on June 25, 2018 at the Grand Lodge of the Philippines in Manila.
