The 26 February 2011 was a very special day for our Lieutenancy. We had our Investiture where three new members, a Knight, a Dame and an Ecclesiastic, were admitted into the Order. His Eminence the Cardinal Grand Master delegated the Most Reverend Tommaso Caputo, Apostolic Nuncio to Malta, as his personal representative for this occasion. We also had the pleasure of having amongst us several foreign guests from various countries.
A number of members were also promoted during the these festivities. These important and most successful celebrations, ended on a high note the following Sunday, where we celebrated the Holy Eucharist at the Russian Chapel within the private residence of President George Abela, at the Palace San Anton, Attard.
On the eve of the Investiture, we had our Vigil. The Vigil is a special service that is held especially for the new members on the eve of their Investiture. During the Vigil, the Confreres and Consoeurs pray together for the new brothers and sisters who will be joining the Order, that our Lord Jesus Christ will strengthen them in their path and their mission in the Order. The new members take the opportunity to prepare themselves for this mission and the great honour that will be bestowed on them through the Investiture as a Knight and Dame of the Holy Sepulchre of our Lord.
Photos from these celebrations will be posted on this website shortly.
