NEW WEBSITE DESIGN:
As you may have noticed, we are gradually updating the appearance of the Temple Lodge, No.33 website. This page is an example of the new design. This will take some time to change individual older pages to the new design so please bear with us while the site is a combination of new pages and pages with the older layout. We will also be introducing new pages which automatically adjust to display on tablets and smart phones.
Please check out our new webpages about Suggested Readings & Research, Books By Masons and Music By Masons. Note that we have added links to Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and other worldwide Amazon sites to allow readers to link directly to Amazon sites to purchase books, CDs, DVDs and other products if they so desire. As far as we are aware, templelodge33.ca is the first Masonic Lodge website anywhere in the world to do this.
