The thirteenth meeting of Templum Phoenix Lodge No.57 will be held on November 26th, 2022 in the quarters of the Masonic Hall, 907 Prospect Street, Fredericton, N.B. commencing at 1:00 pm sharp.

The in-lodge speaker will be Brother Hans Erdmann whose topic will be “REALITY:  It’s All in Your Head, Why you and I don’t live in the same world”.  Brother Erdmann will explore the physical and mental processes that we use to make sense of our world,  from our five senses to our upbringing, they all effect what we think of as “real”.  

The Festive Board speaker will be Brother Wayne Hitchcock whose presentation will illuminate some of the thoughts of Walter Leslie Wilmshurst and Manly P. Hall as to the reason that Freemasonry exists, what it has to offer Freemasons today and how that connects to such esoteric studies as Initiatory societies, Kabbalah, Alchemy and Gnosticism. In the process the history and beliefs of the Gnostics, both ancient and modern, will be brought forward as thoroughly as time will allow. This talk is meant to inspire the curious mind to explore their thoughts on Freemasonry in light of possible benefits that today we barely recognize, much less study and support.

The menu for the Festive Board is as follows:


Savory melon salad with prosciutto, cracked black pepper, toasted almonds and goat cheese croutons. 


Frozen pea soup with minted cream.


Chef Dort will be serving cured pork loin with gorgonzola cheese, toasted walnuts, Swiss Chard and gnocchi.

(The main course will be accompanied by your choice of red or white wine and is included in the cost of the meal.)


Panna Cotta with macerated strawberries.
