The Feast of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary was celebrated on 3 October 2021. The chaplain of the Delegation of France, Monsignor Thierry Laurent, had organised the return of the parish of Saint Rocco, the chapter church he is parish priest of. The Delegation participated in the event and the Association of the Order’s Works was also represented. The chaplain recalled the importance of praying the rosary and the Blessed Virgin, Mother of God. During the mass, those present also prayed for all the parishioners and organisations that play a key role for the parish. Later, there was a picnic in the presence of the various parish choirs and scouts from the church Saint Rocco.
On 29 September, at the “Cercle de Union Interalliée” in Paris, the official presentation of the Scholarship of Saint-Georges was held for the second year by the Vice Delegate of the Delegation of France, Maître Charles-Hubert Olivier, in the presence of Their Royal Highnesses Princesses Beatrice and Anne of Bourbon Two Sicilies and Monsignor Thierry Laurent, Chaplain of the Delegation and Parish Priest of Saint Roch in Paris, the Chapter Church of the Delegation. The Scholarship of Saint-Georges aims at helping students in preparatory classes for the “grandes écoles”. This year, this scholarship was awarded to five students from needy families, so that they could enter the preparatory classes for the “grandes écoles” at the Institution Sainte-Marie in Antony. This scholarship is an invaluable help for these young people who would not be able to fully follow the courses without it. Two years ago, it enabled several students to enter prestigious schools, in particular the Special Military School of Saint Cyr. The Director of the Sainte Marie Institution warmly thanked the Dames and Knights of the Delegation of France for their generosity.
