Join the Philadelphia Chapter Order of Malta as they commemorate the 447th anniversary of the victory at Lepanto. We will begin at 8PM with vespers in the convent chapel, followed by a backyard gathering at the Lombardi (formerly Wallacavage) cottage. There will be a roaring bonfire accompanied by beverages and snacks, the customary dramatic recitation of “Lepanto” by G.K. Chesterton — as well as the hallmark of the Cephalophore Society: great conversation with your brothers in Christ. Since it will be October, we will return to the jacket (sweater optional) and tie requirementfor this event. Please respond by Friday, 5 October.
