St Thomas of Acon - Province of Wessex

RWGP Christmas Greetings

14th December 2020,


Dear Sir Knights,

Christmas Greetings

This year has been one of challenge for us all especially coping with the Coronavirus Pandemic and the constraints placed upon us for our safety and those of others, but with all humility, caring for others should be no stranger. 

At this time of ‘Advent’, it is right that we, as Christian Knights of the Commemorative Order of St Thomas of Acon, should through faith look forward in hope to a brighter future when some sort of normality returns to our lives and in anticipation, to the Celebration of the Birth of Jesus Christ; that wonderful gift of love, by “Casting away the works of darkness and putting upon us the armour of light”; remembering those members who are suffering through ill health or bereavement at this time. Please take wine/soft drink with all our Members as we do so at 5.00pm GMT as Members of the Temple.

On my behalf and of my Right Eminent Provincial Grand Prior, Sir Andrew of Milton, Deputy Grand Secretary, and the Executive of the Province of Wessex, I send you our very Best Wishes for Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year. We thank you for your continued support of the Order for what has passed and with anticipation, for what is to come, so that together we may continue to flourish as a Province of this Order. 

Yours in Humilitas et Caritas

Ian of Widcombe
