During the formal program, His Eminence Edwin Cardinal O'Brien, Grandmaster of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem was invested as an Honorary Patron in celebration of the Equestrian Order’s generous support of Bethlehem University Foundation and his personal support of Bethlehem University and the Foundation. The Grand Magisterium of the Order recently made an extraordinary gift of $50,000.00 to the Sir John McGuckin Endowed Fund. During his comments, the Cardinal highlighted the friendship that exists between the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre and Bethlehem University and spoke of the need for continued support for Bethlehem University.
The Patrons are individuals or couples who make a qualifying gift to the Patrons Endowment. By their generosity, the members of this giving society invest themselves into the work of the Foundation in its sole mission of supporting and promoting Bethlehem University.
Following the investiture of the Cardinal Grand Master, the Bethlehem University Foundation invested six new patrons: Dr. Guy J. & Mrs. Gisela Di Spigno, H.E. Dr. Thompson M. Faller, and Mr. Paul & Mrs. Kirsten Keller. Thank you for your continued support for the mission of Bethlehem University Foundation.
