USA: Visit of the Grand Chancellor to the American Delegation

On Sunday, March 26, 2023, the American Delegation of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies was honored with the visit of the Grand Chancellor of the Orders, H.E. Don Francesco Ruspoli, Prince of Cerveteri accompanied by his wife, H.E. Donna Angelica Ruspoli, Princess of Cerveteri.
A Solemn Mass to pray for the repose of the soul of the late Grand Master, HRH Prince Ferdinand of Bourbon-Two Sicilies for the Fifteenth Anniversary of his Death, was celebrated in the Dominican Church of Saint Vincent Ferrer in New York, attended by many Knights and Dames assisting in choir presided by the Grand Chancellor, with the Vice Delegate of the Delegation.
Following the Mass, the Knights and Dames were joined by the Delegate of the American Delegation of the Savoy Orders, and the Co-Hospitaller for the New York City area of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, for a ‘Pranzo Costantiniano’ luncheon.
Also present for the Mass and luncheon were three religious of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, a Congregation founded in 1997 now numbering over 150 Sisters. The Sisters, who will begin teaching in the new academic year at Sacred Heart School in Gallup, New Mexico, a challenging Native American mission, received an initial contribution of $5,000 from the Delegation, which is committed in a particular way to the support of Catholic Education and the relief of persecuted Christians.
During the luncheon, the Bronze Benemerenti Medal of the Constantinian Order was conferred upon Prof. Gaetano Cipolla who for over 50 years has promoted the historic culture of the Two Sicilies in the United States, especially with the study of the Sicilian language through the Arba Sicula organization.
The Grand Chancellor was able to address the Knights and Dames present, conveying the closeness of His Royal Highness the Grand Master, the other Officials of the Orders and the Grand Chancery.
