Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem – Eastern Lieutenancy
 

May the intersession of our Lady of Palestine keep us and our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land safe during these especially trying times.
 
Dear Knights and Dames,
In light of the continued threat of coronavirus (COVID-19), and the mandatory safety guidelines issued, we have made the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel all in-person events for the Investiture Weekend, 16-17 October 2020.
We have not taken this decision lightly. The health and safety of our members and their families are of utmost importance to us, and we are taking these measures to protect us all.
We had hoped an alternate option of planning several smaller events in different geographical areas would be feasible, but with the possibility of a second wave of the virus we have had to accept that would be inadvisable.
Despite the fact that we are still unable to go into the office, the team has been working very hard remotely to complete all applications. We have been processing everything in the normal manner and applications will be in Rome for approval in the near future.
Promotion Applications: Once approved, members will automatically assume the newer rank. All 2020 and 2021 promotees will be given the opportunity to be part of the 2021 ceremony. However, you will also be given the option to request your new decorations this year should you wish.
Nomination Applications: Once approved, nominees will automatically become members of the Order. All 2020 and 2021 investees will be given the opportunity to be part of the 2021 ceremony.
We are planning a way to hold a virtual spiritual event in October that will also include our Annual General Meeting. We will forward information about that soon.
Thank you for being part of our Order and for your continued support during this difficult time.
May the Intersession of Our Lady of Palestine keep us all safe and well.
May the intersession of our Lady of Palestine keep us and our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land safe during these especially trying times.
          With Love and Prayers,
