Vicar General receives honour from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Rev. Monsignor Preston Moss, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Nassau and Priest of St Anselm's Parish received a distinguished honour of Saint Michael and Saint George (Companion), CMG by Her Majesty the Queen.
The Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George is a British order of chivalry founded on 28 April 1818 by George, Prince Regent (later George IV) whilst he was acting as Prince Regent for his father, George III. It is named in honour of two military saints, St. Michael and St. George.
It is used to honour individuals who have rendered important services in relation to Commonwealth or foreign nations. People are appointed to the Order rather than awarded it.
Others were also honoured as Knight Commander (KCMG), Commander of the British Empire (CBE), Officers of the British Empire (OBE), British Empire Medal (BEM), and Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE).

Congratulations Monsignor Moss!
