The Equestrian Order of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre will hold an Investiture Mass at St George's Cathedral on Saturday 18th June from 10.30 am.
This solemn and colourful Mass, which will commence with a procession through the Cathedral at 10.15 am, will be celebrated by Archbishop John Wilson, and will include the investiture of new members of this historic equestrian order.
The EOHSJ is under the protection of the Holy See, with the Pope being sovereign of the Order. Its origins date back to the 11th Century when it was formed following the first crusades.
Today, the Order offers a lifeline to Christians in the Holy Land through financial support. Funds raised are deployed for the provision of Education and Social Care via the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem.
Archbishop John Wilson is the Grand Prior of the EOHSJ Lieutenancy in England and Wales, with His Eminence Cardinal Filoni being the current Grand Master.
All are welcome to join this service in person or online.
Please note that this Mass will be preceded by a Vigil Service on Friday 17th June at 7 pm in St George's Cathedral. All are welcome online or in person.
