At the beginning of October, the Knights of St Columba held their Supreme Conference in Liverpool.  The conference is normally held in Glasgow where the KSC was founded over 100 years ago, but this year came to Liverpool in honour of the fact that the city is the home of the first council and province in England.

 

Saturday evening saw the Supreme Banquet attended by members of the Order nationwide, their families and guests.  The conference concluded with Sunday Mass in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King celebrated by Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, a former National Adviser to the Order.  Archbishop Bernard Longley, Archbishop of Birmingham, also attended the meeting and concelebrated at the Mass.

 

In his homily Archbishop Malcolm said that we should aim to ‘live in harmony with creation’; he went on to say, ‘the work which we do as Christians and you as Knights of St Columba is actually in line with this understanding of God’s will – He sent His Son to us to restore unity and harmony to creation’.

 

After the homily of the Mass the Ceremony of Installation took place for the new Supreme Officers and Board of Directors of the Knights of St Columba.

 

At the end of the Mass the new Supreme Knight, Harry Welsh, spoke to thank Archbishop Malcolm and Archbishop Bernard and to thank the Liverpool Province of the KSC for their work in organising and hosting the conference.
