Details of the Investiture from our Lieutenant, H.E. Hugh MacKinnon KGCHS
Dear Knights, Dames and Candidates, as noted at our 2018 Annual General Meeting, we will be participating in the first ever Canadian National Investiture from September 27 – 29, 2019. The Montreal Lieutenancy has graciously agreed to host the events. As you will see in the attached link, it will be a very special weekend. So far the itinerary includes:
Participation and talks by our Grand Master Edwin Cardinal O’Brien and by The Pro-Grand Prior of the Order and Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem Mgr. Pierbattista Pizzaballa;
An opening night concert at Mary Queen of the World Cathedral hosted by the Montreal Lieutenancy;
A Conference on the Holy Land, Vespers and Banquet at St. Joseph’s Oratory on the Saturday;
A breakfast and Spiritual Conference at the hotel Sunday morning featuring our own Father Marc-Andre Campbell, and our new Vice Governor General for North America H.E. Tom Pogge;
The Investiture Ceremony at Mary Queen of the World Cathedral on the Sunday.
A Gala celebration dinner at the Hotel. In addition to the “national” events, we will also find time for our Toronto Annual General Meeting. For further details on the weekend, please see the brochure in the link below. Given constraints at the hotel and the inclusion of invitees from across North America (who will want to take part in this incredible event and demonstrate their solidarity with the Order), we could
experience capacity issues. As a result, please register as soon as possible to make sure you reserve your spot. The self-explanatory registration forms for the conference and the hotel are in the attached link.
We look forward to full participation of our Lieutenancy in this very special weekend. Thank you. The link is here:
