Dear Members of Chapters of Saint Helen, as well as Dames and Knights of the Royal Order of Constantine the Great and Saint Helen.
Each year the Dames of The Royal Order of Constantine the Great and Saint Helen commemorate and honor Saint Helen on her official Feast Day, which is celebrated August 18th in the United States, Canada and most of Western culture. Our members in other parts of the world commemorate this historic event according to European, Occidental and other local heritage and societal norms.
His Grace Michael, our Deputy Grand Master, and I are encouraging all members of the Royal Order of Constantine the Great and St Helen, whether you are a Knight or Dame, to honor this remarkable woman by celebrating her many acts of kindness.
I am attaching to this message a short biographical sketch of this remarkable woman and why she is such an important figure in world history.
Some suggestions for events are:
· Hosting a picnic, luncheon or tea;
· Attending a patriotic or military event;
· Volunteering with members at any of the myriad number of non-profit organizations in your area;
· Sharing Empress Helen’s many selfless acts with members of your church or social organizations.
In order to publicly acknowledge your participation – regardless of the size of the event — please submit photos of your event with a brief description. A selection of three of the best submissions will be presented at the September 14, 2019 Annual Meeting & Gala Event in Beverly Hills, it also will be posted on our website, as well as on our FB page.
