April 2018: Unity - Convention celebrated by The Australian Federation in Parramatta
The Australian Federation recently welcomed 45 sisters and brothers from around the Australian Lodges for the 17th National Convention in the City of Parramatta.
A rich program of business activities, educational, fraternal and rituals were held. A stand out of the convention was the large number of pieces of architecture delivered by new and long term members alike. We also welcomed visiting brothers from the RL Freedom, GOdF.
The theme of the Convention was Unity, and this was certainly experienced by all present.
Congratulations to the Sydney Lodge 404 for hosting the 2018 Convention.
For non-members, these conventions are important in the life of the Order, as they are a time of setting new directions and strategies; and sharing thoughts and ideas.

Most people go through life unconscious of the fact they too are builders. Each thought, word and deed has a constructive capacity. The beauty, utility and worth of the Edifice we each build, is contingent upon the care we take each day, in the action of the mind, the heart and the hands.
