Two members of the Abbey-Principality installed as Chaplains of the Order of St John

A service of investiture for the Order of St. John of Jerusalem Knights Hospitaller (British Association of the Russian Grand Priory) took place at the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer, Clerkenwell, London, on Saturday 30 June, by kind permission of the church authorities.

The Prince-Abbot and Archbishop Douglas Titus Lewins (Primate of the Old Roman Catholic Church of Great Britain) were installed as Chaplains of the Order.

In November 2012, the Prince-Abbot was separately appointed to the rank of Prelate – Knight Grand Cross of Justice in the Russian Grand Priory, Commandery of Carpathia, which had been established under the authority of the late Prince Michael of Russia, the Grand Prior of the Russian Grand Priory, in 2005. This was a further branch of the parent Order of the British Association.

After nine years as Chaplain, the Prince-Abbot resigned from all appoitments in the British Association in September 2021. He remains a Prelate and Grand Cross of the Russian Order of St John by virtue of his appointments of November 2012.
