The bishop invests new members of the Order at an investiture service approximately once every two years.
The expectation is that there will be one investiture, usually on a Saturday in the fall, close to All Saints, at Christ Church Cathedral. However, the rules of the Order do allow for the Bishop to have two investitures, one at Christ Church Cathedral for the lower Island and another in a location in or north of Nanaimo. [Canon 10 amended, 100th Synod, 2021]
In the event that a new officer or member is unable to attend their prescribed region’s investiture, it is permissible, with prior approval, for them to be invested at the alternate location.
