A River Forest resident and St. Luke's parishioner is now the head of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem for the North Central region-a division that includes Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.
Max Brown, who recently retired as General Counsel of Rush University Medical Center, was promoted to the esteemed church position on Sept. 28 at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit.
The Order is an ecclesiastical order of knighthood and a high honor in the Catholic Church for laity and clergy.
"The mission of the Order is to support Christians in the Holy Land and in the charitable works of the Latin Patriarch in Israel, Palestine and Jordan," reads a news release received by the Wednesday Journal, Thursday.
The Order has a world-wide membership of 24,000 knights and ladies, half of whom live in the United States in nine different regions.
Brown's wife, Mary Anne Brown, is the executive director of Hephzibah Children's Association in Oak Park.
