It is a privilege to welcome you to the official website of the Western USA Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
The commitment of the Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulchre to continue living Christian Communities in the Holy Land is a grace and blessing that has helped the Church in that area over the centuries. It is truly important to maintain dynamic and living Christian Communities in all of those places where Jesus Christ lived and proclaimed the good news of salvation.
I am very proud of the tremendous commitment of our Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulchre, and I am hopeful that you will find the information on this website to be both informative and spiritually rewarding. I would invite you to join us in prayers asking that Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, will be an instrument to bring an end to the ongoing conflict and violence which so sadly takes place in so many of those Holy Land sites.
May God's blessings be abundant in your life, and may Mary, Our Lady of Palestine, continue to intercede on your behalf before our loving God.
Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, KGCHS
Archbishop Emeritus of Los Angeles
