Fiona became a ‘postulant’ this weekend receiving her medal from NZ’s Governer General  Sir Jeremiah “Jerry” Mateparae

Fi invited some friends to the actual investiture and others out to lunch afterwards.  I really enjoyed accompanying her and her mother Carole to the black tie dinner last night.

Fiona AndersonSt John in New Zealand has global links to the international Order of St John. Her Majesty the Queen is Sovereign Head of the Order and the Governor-General of New Zealand is the head or Prior of St John in New Zealand.

In 1888, in recognition of its work, Queen Victoria made the Order of St John a Royal Order of Chivalry. In New Zealand, Royal Honours continue to be awarded to members for outstanding contributions and commitment to care for their communities. These Royal Honours are an independent part of the New Zealand Honours System. Honours are conferred annually at St John investiture services.
