Catholic Charities Board Member, Dr. Christopher Lipinski Invested into the Order of Malta

On November 15, 2019, Dr. Christopher Lipinski was invested into the Order of Malta. The investiture took place at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City during the Solemn Mass of Investiture celebrated by Cardinal Seán Patrick O’Malley, OFM Cap, Archbishop of Boston. Dr. Lipinski was invested with 70 Knights and Dames into the Sovereign Order of Malta, American Association.

Founded in 1099, the Order of Malta is more than 900 years old and runs hospitals, medical centers, nursing homes and hospice care. From its origin and throughout history, it has emphasized care of the sick and poor. The Order, with 13,500 Knights, Dames and auxiliary members, employs about 25,000 doctors, nurses, auxiliaries and paramedics assisted by 80,000 volunteers in more than 120 countries, assisting children, homeless, handicapped, refugeed, elders, terminally ill and lepers around the world without distinction of ethnicity or religion.

Through its worldwide relief corps, Malteser International, the order aids victims of natural disasters, epidemics and war. In several countries, including France, Germany and Ireland, local associations of the order are important providers of medical emergency services and training.

Dr. Lipinski is a resident of Waterford. He is a parishioner of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Quaker Hill. He is a member of the board of directors of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Norwich, Inc.

“It is a tremendous honor and privilege to belong to the Knights of Malta that gives to the sick and poor,” said Dr. Lipinski.

When Does Christmas Actually End?
By Catholic News Agency How many days is Christmas? When should you finally take those lights off the porch, or remove the tree? Read on for some of the arguments for and against commonly agreed-upon end dates for Christmas. Christmas is one day This, of course, is the simplest answer. Christmas is typically celebrated on Dec. 25 for most of the world, and on Jan. 7 for Churches using the Julian calendar, and on Jan. 6 for yet another, considerably smaller, part of the world. On this day, the liturgy celebrated is the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord. Pr...
