The first investiture of Curitiba Priory was a complete success

The Grand Prior of Brazil, His Excellency Peter Feist, travelled to Curitiba from Florianopolis and His Excellency Joseph Reichsfreiherr von Ritter zu Groenesteyn travelled from Austria to represent the Grand Chancellor.

The church of St Stanislaus was chosen for the investiture, very appropriately in our opinion. The church was also chosen as the church for Curitiba Priory.

The ceremony was magnificent. A touch of Habsburg-Lorraine once again wafted through the country as the herald His Excellency Ritter-Groenesteyn conveyed words of greeting from our Grand Protector His Imperial Royal Highnesses Archduke Sandor Habsburg-Lorraine and Herta Margarete Habsburg-Lorraine.

We welcome all new members to the Order and look forward to continuing our charitable work in the spirit of humanity and charity.

The leadership of the order congratulates them on this magnificent and very successful investiture in Brazil.
