2019 Investiture: September 27-29, 2019

     The 2019 Investiture will be held in Dearborn, Michigan. The local host team, led by Sir James Hicks and Dame Jacqueline Hicks, has planned a wonderful weekend.  

     All meetings, meals and lodging will be at the luxurious Henry Hotel (the former Ritz Carlton Hotel) in Dearborn. The promotion ceremony and memorial Mass will be celebrated on Saturday at the historically significant Ste. Anne de Detroit Church.  (Ste Anne is the oldest continuing operating Catholic parish in America.)  The investiture will take place at the Church of the Divine Child in Dearborn on Sunday.  Inasmuch as Dearborn is the worldwide headquarters of Ford Motor Company there will be a special outing to the Automotive Hall of Fame Museum on Friday evening.
