St John Honours List 2017
I am pleased to advise that Her Majesty the Queen, Sovereign Head of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem, has on the recommendation of the New Zealand Priory Chapter, sanctioned a number of admissions to and promotions in the Order of St John.
Members will be invested at ceremonies in June and November 2017.
St John, which has unbroken links back to the medieval Order of St John, is an independent part of the New Zealand Royal Honours System. We confer membership of the Order of St John on individuals who have acted conspicuously in carrying out the mission of St John New Zealand.
On behalf of the Priory Secretary, the Priory Chapter members and myself, I extend our sincere congratulations to those that have been honoured this year, and thank you all for the wonderful contribution you make to the work of the Order in New Zealand.
– Dr Steve Evans, Chancellor
