#Giving Tuesday



Dear Knights & Dames,

 #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving when people come together worldwide to support charities close to their hearts, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

   Whether it’s making someone smile, showing up for issues or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help. Every act of generosity counts.

This #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2020, the Eastern Lieutenancy of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, asks you consider making a contribution to help the children and less fortunate in the Holy Land who were affected by COVID-19.

 Below please find a message from H.E Vicki Downey, DGCHS expressing her gratitude for everyone who continued to keep faith during these uncertain circumstances.




“You are to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
~ Acts 1.8
The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem – Eastern Lieutenancy is an association of Roman Catholic Christian faithful entrusted with an important mission from the Holy Father – to serve as witnesses to the Christian faith and supporters and protectors of the Church and the living Christian communities in the Holy Land.

The Order’s mandate originates from the time of the crusader knights who were responsible for protecting the Christian pilgrims traveling to the sacred sites. Today the Order’s members continue to aid the Church in the Holy Land and to strengthen the practice of Christian life amongst its members.
