Prince-Abbot receives appointment in the Order of St John

The Prince-Abbot has been appointed to the office of Prelate – Knight Grand Cross of Justice in the Commandery of Carpathia of the Order of St John Knights Hospitaller – Russian Grand Priory.

Already a member of the Russian Grand Priory by virtue of his office as a chaplain within the British Association, the present appointment strengthens the Prince-Abbot’s links with the Russian Grand Priory through association with another commandery of the same Order, this commandery being established by the late Prince Michael of Russia in 2005.
