Investiture of the Grand Priory of Brazil

March 2013

Investiture in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  

The Grand Priory of Brazil of the Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem conducted its fourth annual and solemn investiture in Brazil and thanks to all its members, friends and distinguished guests who attended the Solemn Investiture Ceremony held in March in Rio de Janeiro, this gathering was yet another success for the hard working Grand Priory. The Comendadoria Agnus Dei from Rio de Janiero received its official decree of consecration which enhanced this special day.

This was the first time that the annual investiture was conducted in Rio since previous investitures were held in Sao Paolo.

The investiture also saw a deputation flying in from Europe of the Union-Corps San Lazare International, who are sister members of the United Grand Priories and who are also very active in Brazil. The Grand Prior of the Brazilian Grand Priory, Chevalier Roberto Ortiz, is also the leader of the Brazilian CSLI and this jurisdiction shows in practice how both our teams within the Grand Priory and the CSLI work together and in harmony throughout the year operating Hospitaller work on a constant basis.

A number of postulants were admitted to the Order and a number of promotions were sanctioned by the Supreme Grand Priory.

The office of the Grand Chancellor authorised the Grand Master of the Lazarus Union, H.E. Senator Wolfgang Steinhardt, being the senior Lazarite officer present, to conduct the investiture as investing Grand Officer.

A hearty congratulations to this hard working team.

 

My dear Lazarite brothers and sisters,   It is with great pleasure that I announce you that the next Investiture Ceremony of the Frand Priory of Brazil will take place in the city of Rio de Janeiro on the March 2 2013.  Our team is working hard to be put in plane another memorable ceremony and after the success of international symposium in Malta, we expect to receive many international invites.  We will have an interesting program, based on humanitarian and charitable works that are our pillar and we hope to make an important step for our deployment in this State, with the consecration of the Commandery of São Sebastião do Rio de Janeiro. Everyone in the State is working for this event, including the new postulants who will be invested in this date.  Take a note in your agendas, and hope to meet you all on this special day.
