Welcome to the 2018 Annual Meeting
What a fitting theme for our 2018 Annual Meeting in the Diocese of Orange County!
As members of the Equestrian Order, we are journeying to the Heavenly Jerusalem. We do so as individuals seeking out our personal salvation and as a community supporting and nurturing each other on the Way together.
To receive the Pilgrim Shell is the most sought after honor of our Order. The experience of traveling to the Holy Land and being immersed in the geography, history and feel of the places sanctified by the very presence of the Lord is invaluable to our vocations as members of the Order. Witnessing the ministries the Order supports and encountering the people we support and accompany can only deepen our commitment.
Our gathering at this year’s Annual Meeting is a Pilgrimage. We travel to the Christ Cathedral to meet the Lord. We do so in community to nurture and strengthen each other to live out our call to serve the Christians in the Holy Land as we work out our individual salvation.
May this weekend be a time to reaffirm our relationships, deepen our understanding of the situation in the Holy Land, and refresh ourselves spiritually as we pray, converse, and celebrate in community as members of the Western USA Lieutenancy.
In Our Lady, Queen of Palestine,
H.E. Michael Scott Feeley, KGCHS
