About Templum Phoenix

Templum Phoenix Lodge No. 57 is a duly constituted lodge under the Grand Lodge of New Brunswick having been consecrated on August 11, 2018.

We are a fellowship of Brothers united in a common pursuit of enlightenment and virtue whom are desirous of creating a Lodge dedicated to observing traditional Freemasonry. We believe that the stated purpose of Freemasonry is to enable good men to improve themselves through study and introspection. We believe that Masonic Formation is a slow and careful process that requires great care and effort on behalf of its members, a process that creates positive change within our everyday life. We believe that the goal of the lodge is the cementing of Brotherhood in support of inner transformation of each individual on the divine path towards self-mastery. The lodge views the improvement of the individual as the most fundamental aspect of improving society We highly value the fellowship and friendship that the Lodge can provide and seek to further cultivate this by holding a festive board at every meeting, complete with Brethren presenting thoughtful and well researched papers.

The speaker at the Festive Board will be Brother Stewart Aronson. Brother Aronson’s topic will be:

Rhetoric Within the Trivium” Debate could go on forever concerning the most critical of the seven liberal arts and sciences. However, if we weren’t able to teach or discuss them, how would we communicate their importance? Can a case therefore be made that Rhetoric is the key to spreading Masonic light? Let’s discuss the possibilities.

Asparagus and mushroom soup


Salad comprised of local greens, feta cheese, craisans, walnuts and

mandarins with a maple vinegrette
