Here's a B.C. Catholic story about a recent Mass where the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem welcomed a knight and two ladies:
The order serves Christians in the Holy Land through works of charity and by promoting the Catholic faith.

"We chose to belong to an order that witnesses to the saving truth that the cross of Christ can alone heal the world," Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, said during his homily. He noted the knights and ladies proudly display the cross on their capes.

The archbishop, grand prior for the Vancouver lieutenancy, celebrated the Mass along with fellow knights Bishop David J. Monroe of Kamloops and Vancouver priests Msgr. Pedro Lopez-Gallo, Msgr. Stephen Jensen, and Father Glenn Dion.

Archbishop Miller said as Canadians become more detached from Christianity they see the cross as a sign of torture, suffering, defeat, and failure. Instead, he said, the cross is God's triumph over the evil of the world.
