Grand Priory of Spain

Investiture

This year the Investiture of the Grand Priory of Spain of the Military and Hospitaller Order of St Lazarus of Jerusalem will take place in Madrid.

The ceremonies will begin on the evening of Friday 16 October at 20:30 with a gathering at the headquarters of the Grand Priory of Spain at Calle Claudio Coello No. 112 for the explanation of the event to the postulants followed by the Candle de Armas.

The next day, Saturday, October 17, the investiture of new consoeurs and confreres of the Order, and the admission of new applicants into the Companionate of Merit, will be held in the Monastery of Santo Domingo El Real , close to the Chancellery.

The ceremony will begin with the procession of officials, consoeurs and confreres, as well as postulants, after Holy Mass. The new members will be invested as knights and dames of the Order by the Grand Master, H.E. the Chevalier Francisco de Bourbon von Hardenberg, Count von Hardenberg.

After the event, all participants will proceed to the fellowship meal, at a location to be determined later and which we will report when known.

This invitation from the Grand Priory of Spain is launched well in advance in the hope that the greatest number of members of the Order can attend, and all members are invited to join the celebration of the Investiture of the new brothers of mantle, demonstrating the robust health of the Order of St. Lazarus
