Following the annual Investiture Mass last Saturday, 
our newly installed Grand Prior, H.E. Chev. Anthony Dickinson,
presented a cheque to Mr Mike Parr, Chief Executive of
We have raised £2,000 in recent months for the Hospice. 
The Archbishop of Liverpool, Malcolm McMahon, 
encouraged us to support this Hospice in his diocese, 
which was founded in 1962 by Father Francis O’Leary.
We have been very happy to follow the Archbishop's suggestion 
and hope to continue to build up our association with Jospice,
caring for those in need in the heart of the Archdiocese of Liverpool.
