What the Walsingham Guard Members are Doing to Help During Pandemic

Jean DuBois

GENERAL COMMAND 22 April 2020 (ORCNS) - The Walsingham Guard is an international humanitarian organisation with a long military heritage. Members of the Walsingham Guard and Walsingham Naval Guard are men and women from all walks of life who are concerned about the welfare of our world. Guards participate according to their interests and qualifications. For example, Mariners maintain their nautical traditions working together with Cavalrymen, Pilots, Historians, and others who use their skills to make a positive difference. And, the 2020 Global Pandemic is no exception. The Walsingham Guard members are involved in health and humanitarian efforts, including medical care, chaplaincy, COVID testing, food distributions, and high-level international policy work. 

The Walsingham Guard is part of the Anglo-Italian Imperial Patriarchate, Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church, which is an organisation in special consultative status with the United National Economic and Social Council since 2019.

Guard and Naval Guard members serve today in many ways. The one thing they all have in common is a passion to serve others in the example of Christ. In this current global pandemic and the humanitarian crisis accompanying it, the members of the Walsingham Guard and Naval Guard are truly making a difference.
