Dear Brethren,

I hope you are all well. Here, its winter outside, the mountains around the city are already white, the Christmas Holidays are very near, and we have already begun planning how to organize our next year’s meeting as best as possible.

It is in this perspective and in my capacity as WM of the L Artes Liberales Europa No.7 that I now formally invite you to the XVIth International Symposium of Europa Lodges, which will take place next year on 10-12 May 2024.  The event will be organized in the centre of Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana, at the venue now called “Križanke”, a former monastery with a long history stretching back to Roman times, and then to the Knights Templars and the Knights of the Teutonic Order. At the same place our L ALE was consecrated on 26 November 2016.

We will take care not only of you, my dear brethren, but also of your sisters and guests. In the evening on Friday 5 May, we will have welcome drinks together, which will be followed by a dinner.

In the morning on Saturday 11 May, we will discuss the chosen theme » The European Freemasonry – Prospects for Tomorrow« and try to answer this basic question: Are we, Freemasons, having enough strength and abilities to attract the attention of new generations?

This will be followed by Ritual works in the afternoon and a Gala Dinner in the evening for all brothers and their sisters from Europa Lodges. 

You will receive all necessary, useful, and detailed information about the programme, hotels (with discounts), events, city transportation etc. in due time. 

This information will also be published on our VLS pages. You can always access them by using this link: https://www.prostozidarstvo.si/isel/

Dear WM and all my dear Brethren please receive my warm, respectful, and fraternal greetings.

Looking forward to seeing you soon again,

Vid Stanovnik

Orient Ljubljana (Slovenia)

Dear Brethren of ISEL Lodges,

Six months ago, we all had the pleasure of meeting at the gathering of the Brethren from our Europe Lodges in Podgorica, Montenegro.

And in less than six months, we will meet again, hopefully in as large numbers as possible, in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, to celebrate the 16th anniversary of ISEL.

Ljubljana will thus become the capital of the Europe Masonic Lodges for two days, from 10-12 May 6024, hosting the Europe Lodges Symposium.

The chosen theme:

» The European Freemasonry – Prospects for Tomorrow«

We are all living in turbulent times, everything is changing. AI has already entered deeply into our lives. Do we, Freemasons, have enough strength and abilities to attract the attention of the new generations? We will get back to you very soon to introduce you to the speakers who will discuss the subject.

Today, our concern is to warmly welcome you in the best possible way, so that the 16th symposium will meet your aspirations and remain in your hearts as a magnificent moment of European fraternity.

Fraternally Yours,

Worshipful Master Vid Stanovnik
