On August 17, 2016, the Grand Priory of America celebrated the investiture in to our Order of Gregory M. Aymond, Roman Catholic Archbishop of New Orleans.  His Archdiocese covers eight Louisiana civil parishes, home to about a half million Roman Catholics.  The Investiture was conducted at the Notre Dame Seminary Chapel in New Orleans, by Grand Prior Kenneth P. Moritsugu GCLJ and by Prelate George Appleyard EGCLJ.  Approximately, 80 members of our Order representing the Grand Commandery of the South and the Imperial Calcasieu Delegation were in attendance. Following the investiture, everyone was invited to a lovely reception at the Archbishop’s residence.
