During the 2004 investiture ceremony of the Grand Priory, the latter was honored by a deputation from the Grand Priory of South Africa of the Order of Saint Lazarus. The deputation was led by the Grand Prior Elect, Chevalier Steven Groenweld GCLJ. Our Grand Priory was indeed honored to provide the venue for the installation of the Grand Prior of South Africa by the Grand Chancellor of the Order, Fra John Baron von Hoff, who was ably assisted by our own Confrere Thomas Nash OLJ, as the former’s aide de camp.
