2021 Lenten Day

Dear Members,

Lenten Video: Way of the Cross from Jerusalem

Dear Knights and Dames,
As I’m sure we all miss sharing our experiences together in the Holy Land, our good friends in Jerusalem has sent us a wonderful video of Fr. Peter F.Vasko, OFM President – Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land. Hope this video gives you all the feel of actually walking along the Via Dolorosa.



“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.
