An Early Lieutenancy/Delegation of the Order in Ireland?

PREPARING FOR THE JOURNEY TO BETHLEHEM

I

t was no “light of fancy” when I decided to cycle from Dublin to Bethlehem in order to celebrate my forthcoming 70th birthday and to raise much needed funds for the Holy Family Children’s home in that city. As I had twice completed the same mission I was under no illusion as to what was involved and the need for careful and detailed preparation. First on the list was an Outline Plan and the Lieutenant’s blessing on the project. Having received the Lieutenant’s assent and the bonus of his assurance of every possible support it was time to get down to the “nitty gritty.” The plan was in two parts—administrative and operational. The former included fundraising, sponsorship of cycling kit, preparation of team handbook, travel arrangements and some less important details. Fundraising was initiated by the Lieutenant who promised to try to raise €70,000 and a challenge to me to match that sum. Talk about there being “no free lunches!”

R

esearch by our secretary has brought to light some confusing facts about Knights of the Holy Sepulchre in Ireland pre 1945. What has always been known is that many Irish citizens have been made members of the Order since the reforms of 1847. As information comes available some of these details have been published in the newsletter. One such member was Sir Thomas Grattan Esmond who was described in the Irish Times of the 8th October 1934 as a Grand Commander and representative of the Order in Ireland. There are many reports of his visiting Rome, where he was also a Chamberlain of the Vatican Household, created in 1898. Warming up to training

he operational side is proceeding apace. The team has been assembled—three veterans of two former cycles to Bethlehem and one newcomer. Gender balance is excellent with two males and two females. As we are all travelling on this occasion without motor support we have had to purchase new touring bicycles to accommodate panniers for carrying our baggage. Training has commenced and, at present, I am cycling 40 miles five days per week and doing two gym sessions. This will not change a great deal except for inclusion of some serious hill work. The route has been altered a little and our daily mileage will be between 65 and 70 miles which will entail six to seven hours in the saddle and 32 days on the road in total. Finally, we are preparing a simple religious programme including

morning and evening prayers and Mass when and where possible. From previous experience I have no doubt there will be impromptu prayers recited on hills and for forgiveness for the originator of this challenge. Deus lo Vult

Pilgrimage to Knock 2013

The fourth Lieutenancy Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady Knock Co Mayo took place commencing Friday afternoon 25th January, 2013 and concluding at lunchtime Saturday 26th January. Following on the preparations organised by Chev Charles Kelly and Chev Donal Burke the Lieutenancy gathered at the Marian Shrine of Knock to prepare spiritually for the coming year. The acting Lay Master, Chev Donal Burke, assisted by Comdt Frank Hearns, gathered the members and accompanying spouses and friends for the Evening Prayer of the Church.

The format of the service was biblical readings, the recitation of the creed, choral music and prayers. Amongst the prayers read by His Excellency Nicholas McKenna was the following “Walking with Christ in the way of the cross, we are conscious of the many places in our world that are torn apart by sorrow and suffering. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and for all communities where there is division and distrust. Grant to them O God, your peace which passes all understanding and prosper the work of those who work to establish your reign of peace.”

he Lieutenancy has entered a new era when the new website of the Order was launched. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. This is a great tool to keep in touch, share information, news, items of interest and much more. Visit http://www.holysepulchre.ie

To mark Christian Unity Week 2013 the Lieutenancy was invited, with others, by the Vicar Rev Andrew McCroskery, on Sunday 20th January to Choral Evensong in St Bartholomew’s Church of Ireland, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

The Rosary was recited by Nicholas McKenna, Charles Kelly, Brendan O'Reilly, Con Power and Jack Fadden and concluded with Benediction. The prayerful meditation was conducted by Ecclestical Knight Vy Rev Alan Burke.Afterwards members and friends gathered in the Knock House Hotel for communal dinner. During the course of his remarks the Lieutenant, His Excellency Nicholas McKenna, announced that the Presidency of the Order had communicated to him earlier that day the promotion of two dames, Dame Geri Walsh to Dame Grand Cross, and Dame Aine O'Reilly to Dame Commander. He also stated that members should be conscious in their prayers of the ill health of a number of members. Concluding he stated that a Pilgrimage would be formed for 2014 to progress to the Holy Land.

The next day members gathered in the Parochial Church, abutting the Apparition Chapel for Morning Prayer of the Church and subsequently the Stations of the Cross. Afterwards members processed to the Apparition Chapel where Mass was celebrated by Vy. Rev'd Alan Burke, Vy. Rev'd Francis Mitchell, Vy. Rev'd Anthony Gillespie, Fr. Donal O'Callaghan, Fr. Mark Mohan and postulant Fr Derek Darby. The liturgical reading was undertaken by Chev Vincent McBrierty and Chev Frank Hurl led the prayers of the faithful, which included the Papal petition for January "That the Christian communities of the Middle East, often discriminated against, may receive from the Holy Spirit the strength of fidelity and perseverance".

Making or contemplating revision of your Will

You may wish to remember the Lieutenancy in making your will. Where a testator/testatrix is making his/ her Will and wishes to include a charitable Bequest as part of it, it is important that great care is taken to describe properly the Charity in question so that the gift/property can be passed to the intended beneficiary. A gift to the Order can consist of either personal or real property or a straight forward money gift. The following wording might be used: "I Give and Bequeath the sum of ? (or else described exactly the property which is being given) to the

Fr Burke in the course of his homily (the full text of which is in the Reflections area of the Website) said "Christian hope is also that which allows the credibility of what we believe in to come to the fore. Some social commentators today point to what is termed a "crisis of credibility" with regard to the content of our Catholic Christian faith. Personal holiness, which has been rooted in the virtue of Christian hope, is an absolutely indispensible part of the Christian enterprise......There is an urgent task before us now in the context of the renewal of the Catholic Church in Ireland so longed-for by Our Holy Father of presenting the rich treasures of our Catholic faith in such as way that they are considered credible by those who are searching; to suggest that living by the compass of faith is a valid way for any person to live their life; to call all women and men to full, active membership of the ecclesial Body of Christ, the Church.....Christians hope for a better future underscored by Gospel values because we have hope in the victory of Christ, confirmed to us through his Resurrection, evidenced by the empty Tomb and made accessible to us in the mystery of the church of our time".

Lieutenant for the time being of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, Lieutenancy of Ireland for the specific purpose of utilising this gift for its charitable objectives and purposes".

If a member has already made a Will, and wishes to make a gift to the Order without changing their

Original Will, they can add a Codicil to their Will incorporating such Gift. However such Documents should be handled with care and should not be attempted without firstly seeking the advice of the Solicitor who drew up their Will in the first instance.

A successful website http://holysepulchre.ie

In the past 12 months our website has experienced a very high “hit rate”. In that time 4,380 visitors came to the site to browse up to 20,000 pages in total. Our visitors are coming from a wide range of countries, mostly Europe, the Americas and Australia, indeed we are very big in Guam. Several visitors found our site using links on other Lieutenancy’s sites, we aim to reciprocate and send them back visitors. Our site follows the contemporary trend of being browsed on mobile devices. We welcome all your comments on improving the site, please contact our webmaster: webmaster@holysepulchre.ie.

However the piece states that the Order was introduced to Ireland by no less than Daniel O’Connell! It would be surprising if there were no Vatican recognition to any prominent catholic of the period who had achieved freedom for religious practices for a nation’s Catholics. This would usually have taken the form of a papal title. However as Catholic Emancipation was obtained in 1829, and in that period the records of admission to the Order where maintained in Jerusalem, there is no mention of the admission of Daniel O’Connell to the Order On his December visit of 1931 the Irish Times between 1829 and 1847!

The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem is a Charity group that I support by designing materials for them. 1. Quarterly Newsletter: I produce a newsletter from a template I redesigned with articles and photos I collect from members. 2. Members Booklet: To mark the 25th anniversary I produced a booklet listing the past and present members. The challenge in creating this document was to synchronize all details per member from a MS Excel list into the Adobe InDesign file, simplifying the updating process. 3. The Mass Booklet is created annually for the investiture of new members. This Adobe InDesign document syncs with a long MS Word file to be updated by the customer.

Lay Master: Financial aid for the Church in the Holy Land - that she may exist and work where the Word of God became incarnate, died and rose from the dead for our redemption - is linked to St. Paul’s care for those in need in the Church of Jerusalem, organising for this mission special collections in the various Churches he founded. Let us once again read His exhortations addressed to the faithful of Corinth so that our gesture of mercy may be enlightened by the same reasons and have the same generosity the Apostle wished for.

And in this matter I give my advice: it is best for you now to complete what a year ago you began not only to do but to desire, so that your readiness in desiring it may be matched by your completing it out of what you have. For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what a man has, not according to what he has not. I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened, but that as a matter of equality your abundance at the present time should supply their want, so that their abundance may supply your want, that there may be equality.

have redeemed the world.

Priest: Jesus went out bearing His cross, to the place called the Skull, which in Hebrew is called Golgotha” (John 19:17) In taking the cross, Jesus accepted it as the instrument that would end His earthly life. With a courage supported by His infinite love for us all, He embraced that cross so that by His death we might all obtain eternal life. Let us pray:

Organ Music

All: Lord Jesus, many minor crosses come to us in our daily lives.

We accept the cross of monotony, misunderstanding, pain, sickness and disappointment. Remind us that in accepting our daily crosses we are united with You in carrying Your own.

The scourging, the crowning with thorns, the sleepless night left Jesus in a state of exhaustion. No wonder the weight of the cross brought Him to his knees, and pinned Him to the ground beneath the heavy burden He carried that we might be free. Let us pray: All: Lord Jesus, in our human weakness we often fall. Help

us to rise again by drawing strength from Your example and by the supporting grace You merited for us by his fall.

Macedonia, for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of liberality on their part. For they gave according to their means, as I can testify, and beyond their means, of their own free will, begging us earnestly for the favour of taking part in the relief of the saints and this, not as we expected, but first they gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God. Accordingly we have urged Titus that as he had already made a beginning, he should also complete among you this gracious work. Now as you excel in everything- in faith, in utterance, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in your love for us-see that you excel in this gracious work also.

All: Holy Mother, pierce me through In my heart each wound

You have redeemed the world.

I create web sites for customers in various industries: charity, counseling, technical; from sole traders to larger companies. I use different technologies from standard HTML to CMS using Joomla! and Wordpress. For some customers I integrated shopping carts and other tools to book apartments, vehicle service testing, contribution of content... 1. Web site for the KHS Order, holysepulchre.ie, using Joomla!. This website is for the Irish charity I support. They send regular content, including a regular flow of images and YouTube movies that need to be embedded. The newsletter is uploaded as a slideshow and with a link to issuu.com. 2. The KHS Order in the UK was very impressed with the Irish site, they contacted me to help them recreate their site in a more practical platform like Joomla! Their site offered an interesting challenge as the UK is divided in regions and each region needs to be able to login to update their own part of the site. Like their Irish counterpart, I built the template from scratch 3. CounsellingCarlow.ie is built on a Wordpress installation with a custom made theme. This choice allows the customer to easily update the site 4. CycleHolidaysIreland.ie (under construction). This site is very interesting to build on responsive layout from Adobe Dreamweaver and with templates to allow the customer to update the site safely. 5. LRSinstitute.com was created to promote ISO standards in legal firms, there is a large document management structure for members. The other challenge was to create a site to the customer’s design. 6. HRAlliance.ie is a site for a group of HR consultants, it is HTML based and offers a lot of information to the customers via PDF downloads. I created their brand identity, including business cards, folders... 7. Warmo.fr (discontinued) presented unique difficulties as based Joomla! the customer wanted unique layouts and functions that would change depending on the users’ role after login. I created other sites for customers who wanted to share online with their staff tools like SugarCRM, LMS, Accounting and Project Management.

The GAA is an Irish national sports organization that has branches in several other countries. When they migrated from a Google corporate account to Microsoft Office 365 for their communication and file sharing I developed a set of course outlines, support and eLearning material before traveling the country to deliver the course. This project had a tight deadline. This handout provided great support to the learners and the delivery of the training.


Manuals I was contracted to build a customized set of course outlines, exercises and materials to support some staff training in Coca-Cola. I created a set of posters to advertise the course and various training books to be used in the training room and for on-going practice. Each book is a mix of explanation, instruction and practice pages. I learned a lot from managing the translations of the content in various languages and adjusting each book to fit the new content. 1. Posters translated in several languages 2. Training manual on computer use 3. Training manual on using Microsoft OWA and Coca-Cola own tools

Did you know? Douglas Engelbart at the Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) invented the first mouse prototype in 1963, with the assistance of his colleague Bill English. They christened the device the mouse as early models had a cord attached to the rear part of the device looking like a tail and generally resembling the common mouse.

Web Based Training

I find eLearning fascinating. I have taken several courses about Blended Learning, Virtual Education and other related topics. For customers’ internal WBT’s I developed several courses which combine several skills from planning, scripting, graphic design, MS PowerPoint, audio-video recording and editing and integration in a SCORM compliant LMS platform like Moodle.

St Joseph is a secondary school near Dublin. A customer who was doing a Phd. asked me to create a booklet that would help students track their progress, raise issues during their school year. This booklet was sent to all secondary students in the country and was successful. Several schools contacted me then to create their own version of the booklet. 1. The first year we chose a ‘Harry Potter’ theme for the first year’s student booklet to inform them of the rules, what to expect for their enrollment and details to fill in to support their integration. It was very well received by the student community. 2. The following year, a similar booklet was put together using a social media style.

Classroom Students in St Joseph’s are expected to: Be on time, be on task, be prepared;

Classroom Rules Be in class on time with all your books and equipment. Take off your jacket and sit in the place the teacher has given you. Pay attention, do your work and let others do their work.

Show respect for yourself, other students and school property;

No eating/ chewing / drinking in class

Behave properly at all times;

Treat your classmates and teachers with respect – be nice!

Always make an effort and try your best.

Put your hand up to get the teacher’s attention.

Be careful with all furniture and equipment

put my name on my jacket

In every room there is a copy of the classroom rules. Teachers will explain what they expect you to do whilst you are in their class. You must be in full school uniform every day with proper school shoes. You need to make sure that you have your name on your school jacket. This way if you leave it behind you it is easier to get it back to you. Sometimes there are announcements made in class telling students about things happening in school.

is my lunch time activity

There are three classes in the morning before break at 11am. Break lasts fifteen minutes. This is followed by two more classes. Lunch starts at 12.35am. First year students go to the old corridor for lunch. Each class will have a separate room assigned to them.

Homework Homework is an important part of your school life. Secondary school homework can be very different from what you have been used to doing in primary school. You will get used to it really quickly so don’t worry. Just make sure you do it every day.

is my Favorite Class

You will have homework every day but not for every subject.

Bullying

You will have homework to do at the weekend.

We have an Anti Bullying Code in St Joseph’s:

You will have to know when you need to have your homework done for each subject.

We treat each other fairly and with respect

Homework is not just written work. Reading, learning and project work are examples of homework.

We do not tolerate bullying behaviour –this includes hurtful slagging We are able to report bullying without being afraid We stand up and support each other

There are three shorter school days on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Students have eight classes during the day. Classes start back after lunch at 1.15pm on these days and school finishes at 3.15pm. On Tuesday and Thursdays afternoon classes start at 1.10pm and school finishes at 3.50pm. There are nine classes on these days. There is a roll call in the first class after lunch.

is my Form Teacher

Students are allowed to bring their mobile phones and ipods to school and they can be used before and after school, during break and lunch only. At the end of the school day some students go to homework club, study or training. Others head off home after they have been to their lockers to sort out their books for the next day and get down to that all important homework. After dinner, free time, catching up with friends and family then it’s off to sleep before it’s time to do it all over again!


Certifications I am passionate about learning. Over the years I heave built my expertise with some application. While delivering training courses I experience the use of these applications in a wide range of sectors and was frequently challenged to offer technical solutions for unique problems:

1. Adobe: I have been using Adobe products for the past 25 years to design for print, web and animation. Photoshop & Lightroom Illustrator InDesign & InCopy & FrameMaker Acrobat Dreamweaver & Muse Flash Fireworks Bridge Edge (Animate, Reflow, Inspect, Code) Captivate & Presenter LiveCycle Designer 2. Microsoft: To deliver training sessions I learned and practiced my skills for Microsoft Office; Word, Excel PowerPoint and Outlook Visio, Access and InfoPath SharePoint I developed several End-User and Super-User courses for SharePoint, I installed and administered my own farm as well as online accounts. 3. Miscellaneous Over the years I used 3D programs (SketchUp, AutoCAD and 3D Studio), Quark Xpress and CopyDesk, FileMakerPro, Articulate 4. I am currently practicing to create mobile apps and Digital Publication from InDesign.
