Maharlika Shrine Club

The Maharlika Shrine Club was formed in 1991 at Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo, Quezon City by the Nobles from the uniformed personnel of both the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP).

The Tagalog word “Maharlika” means “nobility”. There are  several prominent members of Maharlika Shrine Club among whom are: [1] MW Juanito G. Espino, Jr., Past Grand Master of Masons under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of the Philippines and former Commissioner of the Commission on Audit; [2] Gen. Antonio C. Santos, Jr., former Undersecretary of the Department of National Defense and Professorial Lecturer of the National Defense College of the Philippines; and [3] former Chief Supt. Reynaldo Berroya, who is also the former Chief of the Land Transportation Office, to name a few, who  are  all Past High Shereefs (Past  Presidents) of Maharlika Shrine Club. Past Potentate, Ill. Manuel C. Espiritu, Jr., is also a Past High Shereef of Maharlika Shrine Club.

For Shrinedom 2015, Maharlika prides itself as the only shrine club under Mabuhay Shriners  Philippines that  attained legal personality by registering itself  as  a non-stock, non-profit organization with  the  Securities and Exchange Commission, which  aims  to  continue promoting the principles of Freemasonry through the philanthropic  mission of the Shriners International (AAONMS) of helping the  burned and crippled children, including children with disabilities and special children. As of December 2015, Maharlika Shrine Club is highly-esteemed to be composed of 363

Nobles and meets regularly on the 4th Thursday of each month.
