Inauguration ceremony and the installations of the officers for the New Council, St. Theresa the Little Flower Council 16005 took place on October 5, 2014. It was also celebrated with the Feast of St. Theresa.

The Ceremony took place during the mass with an Honour Guard. All parishioners assisted this great ceremony. After the Ceremony, all parishioners and members were invited to a reception in the main hall of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus parish.

Vivat Jesu or Vivat Jesus

When the late Supreme Chaplain Bishop Charles Greco was a seminarian he was deeply moved while reading the story of St. Bernadine of Siena. He adopted the saint’s favorite prayer – “May Jesus Live”, in its Latin form “Vivat Jesu”, to use as the motto for his life and priesthood. When he became Bishop of Alexandria, LA in 1946, Bishop Greco chose the same phrase as his Episcopal motto.

Our past Supreme Knight, Virgil Dechant, thought our Order ought to be devoted to the name of Jesus and chose Bishop Greco’s motto “Vivat Jesu” as a greeting. The response is “SEMPER”, meaning ‘always’. By its use, we Knights help bring back the love and devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus.

Vivat Jesu


Vivat Jesu ou Vivat Jesus

Lorsque le feu aumônier suprême, Mgr Charles Greco était séminariste, il a été profondément ému en lisant l'histoire de saint Bernardin de Sienne. Il a adopté la prière préférée du saint - "Que Jésus vive", dans sa forme latine «Vivat Jesu", à utiliser comme devise dans sa vie et le sacerdoce. Quand il est devenu évêque d'Alexandrie, LA en 1946, l’évêque Gréco choisi la même phrase comme devise épiscopale. 

Notre passé Chevalier suprême, Virgil Dechant, pensait que notre Ordre devrait être consacrée au nom de Jésus et a choisi la devise de Mgr Greco "Vivat Jesu" comme un salut. La réponse est "sempre", ce qui signifie «toujours». Par son utilisation, nous Chevaliers aidons à ramener l'amour et la dévotion au Saint Nom de Jésus.
