Prince-Abbot receives awards

The Prince-Abbot has received awards from the Rt. Revd. Christian Kliver, Bishop for the German-speaking countries in the Apostolic Pastoral Congress and a member of the Confraternitas Oecumenica Sancti Sepulcri Hierosolymitani.

The Apostolic Pastoral Congress is a Pentecostal Holiness church and a member of the Evangelical Alliance of Great Britain as well as a number of ecumenical groups.

Bishop Kliver has awarded the Medal “Pro Deo et Ecclesia” and the “Abbot Klaus D. Schlapps OPR” Memorial Medal to the Prince-Abbot. The latter medal commemorates the late Dom Klaus Schlapps OPR OA, Grand Prior and Duke of Saih Nasra in the Abbey-Principality and a member of the Order of Antioch, who was a mutual friend of the Prince-Abbot and Bishop Kliver.

Bishop Kliver, who is a member of the Order of the Crown of Thorns and the Order of the Sacred Cup, has been appointed a Chaplain of the San Luigi Orders in the Grand Priory of Continental Europe.
