The international Confraternitas Oecumenica Sancti Sepulcri Hierosolymitani with its seat in Bavaria, Germany, has announced that it has appointed the Prince-Abbot as an Honorary Brother.
The Brotherhood was re-organised in 1987 after the model of the “Jerusalempilger von der ritterlichen Bruderschaft vom Heiligen Lande zu Haarlem” founded in 1394, and has as its Patron the Apostle St Andrew. Its ecumenical membership counts both Old and Roman Catholics as well as Anglicans, Lutherans and members of the Reformed Churches. The Grand Prior is H.E. Dom Klaus Schlapps, OPR, Duke of Saih Nasra, who serves as Prior of Continental Europe for the San Luigi Orders.
