COMMISSION ON INFORMATION FOR RECOGNITION

2004 Commission Report

Confederation of Mexican Grand Lodges

An extensive study was undertaken this year to understand the situation and relationships with the Mexican Grand Lodges. One source estimated there are or were some 130 Grand Lodges in Mexico. Of these, there appear to be only 30 state Grand Lodges and the York Grand Lodge that are considered to be practicing Regular Masonry and observing accepted and expected relationships among each other and with foreign Grand Lodges. Those state Grand Lodges are members of the “Confederación de Grandes Logias Regulares de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos”, and include the following:

2020 Commission Report

In 2004 the Commission reported that the Confederation of Mexican Grand Lodges (Confederación de Grandes Logias Regulares de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos) had undertaken an extensive study to identify those grand lodges in Mexico which were practicing regular Masonry and could reasonably be considered for recognition. Additional grand lodges have been added to that list since 2004. A complete list of those grand lodges recognized by the Confederation of Mexican Grand Lodges will be included in the 2020 report of the Commission on Information for Recognition book and on the web site.

Our Grand Lodge is one of the thirty-one Regular Grand Lodges in Mexico that appeared since 2004 in the report of the Commission on Information for Recognition, of the Conference of Grand Master Masons of North America. The Grand Lodge of Puebla has been practicing regular freemasonry since its foundation in 1996.
