On Friday 18th December, the Maltese Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem organised a Special Christmas Mass at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Mdina, celebrated by His Grace Mgr. Charles J. Scicluna, Archbishop of Malta and Grand Prior of our Lieutenancy in the presence of H.E. Roberto Buontempo, our Lieutenant.
The event was well attended by numerous members of the Council, members of the Order, postulants and family members.
Special guests of the evening were H.E. the Noble Daniel de Petri Testaferrata, President of the Maltese Association of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and his wife Ms. Enyd de Petri Testaferrata Pisani.
Following the Holy Mass, His Grace the Grand Prior presented H.E. de Petri Testaferrata the Gold Cross of Merit, a most prestigious and well deserved award for his invaluable contribution towards the development of a respectful and synergistic relationship between our two Orders.
All necessary safety protocols were observed by all throughout the event.
