Notes from our Lieutenant:
- The weekend of October 2 / 3, we will have our Investiture and AGM. At this time Archbishop Dunn will he installed as the Prior for our Lieutenancy as Archbishop Mancini is retiring later in the fall. This is also the 10th Anniversary of our Lieutenancy so we have lots to celebrate. Events will be taking place in Halifax with liturgical celebrations at Saint Mary's Cathedral Basilica. If any of you are willing to be part of a committee to plan events for this weekend, please email or phone me.
Mark your calendars and plan to come and celebrate.
- On October 25, Fr Paul Morris, KCHS will be leading a pilgrimage to Fatima, Lourdes and Barcelona. This is a 10 day pilgrimage, organized by Collette Tours, to pray together, visit holy sites, learn more history about our faith and walk with other faithful Catholics on their spiritual journeys. At the time of writing this letter, there are still spaces available.
This is not an 'Order' pilgrimage but we are reminded that part of our mission is to grow spiritually as individuals and this is an opportunity for spiritual growth. Anyone interested in receiving more information, contact Maritime Travel: email@example.com or phone 902-429-7883.
- From June 17 to 21, 2021, all members of the Order are invited to be a part of a Pilgrimage to Lourdes. The last time all of the membership was invited to gather, 3400 members of the Order assembled in Rome. This was in September 2013 and it was a deeply moving experience to pray and journey with so many members of the Order.
Note that this is 2021, a. year and a half from now. I will send more details as they come to me.

Compiled by H.E. Trudy Comeau, DGOHS, LieutenantThough we are ancient in origins, the Order is working diligently to keep relevant with what is happening within the church and around the world. The new website : www.oessh.va is up and running along with Facebook and Twitter – visit and follow!! There are reports from the Lieutenants’ meetings both in North America and Europe and an interview with Fr Pizzaballa who has taken responsibilities as the new Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarch with the retirement of His Beatitude Fouad Twal. For real assurance that the Order is following its mission to assist those living in the Holy Land, read about the project to build 400 care centers to alleviate the ‘Babywarehouse” problem. (P XVIII). Our Order is vitally important to providing aid (both spiritually and materially) to those in the Holy land. Please keep them all in your prayers.
The Dames and Knights of the Equestrian (Knightly) Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem are pleased to greet you in the name of our Crucified and Risen Lord.
We invite you to explore both the history and the mission of this Order of Chivalry
By visiting this site, we hope you will have some idea of the relevance of being a Knight or Lady of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre. The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre is one of the few Orders of Chivalry which entails a serious commitment for its members.
Throughout the ages, various Popes have praised the Order and have entrusted to the members of the Order the primary missions of personal sanctification and support of our Christian sisters and brothers in the Holy Land.
Being a Knight or Lady of this Order is not an empty honor -it is a privilege conferred on those who profess the Catholic Faith in union with the Pope and strive to live out the promises made at their investiture in their daily lives.
The work of the Order in the Holy Land is expressed through prayer, knowledge and education about the conditions in the Holy Land, sharing this awareness with others,and through financial contributions to the work of the Latin Patriarch and various other institutions. Many educational institutions owe their very existence and continued operation to the contributions made by the various Lieutenancies of the Order throughout the World. While struggling to maintain a relatively strong Christian presence in the land made sacred by the Life, Death and Resurrection of Our Saviour, the percentage of Christians in these Sacred Land is diminishing for a variety of reasons.
All institutions supported by the Equestrian Order are available to all peoples living in the Holy Land.
