A unique event at Westminster Abbey

On Wednesday 15th May 2019 members and guests of the Order were present at the Cavalry & Guards Club, Piccadilly, for the Military & Hospitaller Order of St Lazarus of Jerusalem Charitable Trust fundraising dinner in aid of the Leprosy Mission and Combat Stress.

The following morning, by very kind permission of the Dean of Westminster, an Old Rite (Latin) Low Mass was celebrated by Fr Sebastian Jones Cong Orat, SChLJ (Commandery of Wales Joint Chaplain, Dean of Newman Hall Cardiff University Catholic Chaplaincy and Superior of the Cardiff Oratory) at the Shrine Altar of St Edward the Confessor at Westminster Abbey. This amazing ecumenical gesture was greatly appreciated by all present.

 

The Commander of Wales (Chevalier Dr David Woolf KCLJ) served the Mass, which was attended by the Marshal (Confrère Haydn Rees), Deputy Marshal (Confrère Rhys Jenkins OLJ), Mr Daniel Morris CMLJ and HH Judge Patrick Curran QC.
