The Feast of the Triumph of the Cross held on Sunday 14 September 2014 at 11am in the Holy Cross Church, Hamilton Hill was a great success with twenty one Knights and Dames attending from the order and a large local parish turnout as well.

Rev. Fr. Nicholas Nweke the local parish priest and Ecclesiastical Knight had got the idea when he was in Rome, Italy in September 2013 where he celebrated mass with all the Knights and Dames from all over the world on the Feast of the Triumph of the cross in Saint Peters Basilica .  As his parish had a relic of the original cross and relics of the twelve apostles he decided to ask his parish community to see if they wanted to hold this inaugural celebration at the parish of Hamilton Hill in September 2014.

Friday 22nd August is the Feast day of Our Lady Queen of Palestine. These are most troubled times for the people of the Holy Land. We should make a special effort on this feast day to recite our prayer for Mary’s intercession

On Friday 22nd August Father Richard Smith, our Ecclesiastical Knight Master of Ceremonies will say his regular 9.00 AM mass dedicated to Peace in the Holy Land.

At the end of Mass the prayer to Our Lady Queen of Palestine can be recited. I invite all who can make it, to attend (no regalia to be worn).
