View PDYC Features
As his hectic schedule as a successful businessman
occupy most of his time, DeMolay Grand Master Rosendo C. Herrera, always
find time to make himself available to what he considers as his most
important investment, our youth,
His deep concern for the youth have earned him an
unprecedented fourth term as Grand Master and “Dad” to over 30 thousand
young men of the Order of DeMolay in the Philippines. Since he took over
as Grand Master in 1994, the Order has reached unparalleled heights and
record yields in continuing the immortal vision of the Order’s founding
Fathers. To Dad Frank Land, Michael Goldenberg, Andrew Guber, Manuel
Crudo, and Macario Ramos, whose pioneering spirits illuminated the flame
for the growth and development of the DeMolay movement in the world and
in the Philippines, GM Herrera carries the torch onward a new Crusade to
prepare our youth for the next generation.
His enthusiasm and spiritedness was simply contagious
that his Masonic friends believed in his vision and joined the folds as
benefactors of the youth. Dad Herrera never lost sight of his dreams. He
remained focused with great precision befitted a great architect.
It is with the same zeal and diligence with which in
him now rests the task of preserving the great heritage of the Order.
DeMolay is headed toward a brighter tomorrow with an unusual advantage:
With GM Herrera at the helm, DeMolay marches onward
to a new mission empowered by the same dream and vision that inspired
our forefathers to plant the seed of DeMolay. Onward to a new vision to
realize the establishment of the first ever Philippine DeMolay Youth
Center in the world.
