Canon Christopher Tuckwell, Administrator of Westminster Cathedral and Canon Daniel Cronin were very welcome guests in choir. The High Mass was celebrated by the Chaplain to the Grand Priory, Monsignor Antony Conlon.

Following Mass devotions to the icon of Our Lady were accompanied by Schubert's Salve Regina.  A new page of images and the history of the Icon of Our Lady of Philermo may be seen here.

During Mass, Mr Neil Ward made his Promise of Obedience, and Mr Raoul Fraser was invested in the Order as a Knight of Honour and Devotion. There were also three investitures in the Order Pro Merito Melitense after Mass, which was followed by a Reception in Fortescue House.
