It is with deep sorrow that The Magisterial House announces the decease, in the sequence of a serious illness, in the city of Budapest, of our beloved Reverend Father Laszlo Lipp at the age of 62.

Revered Father Laszlo Lipp was a well-known and respected Priest of the Roman Catholic Church and he honored Our Sovereign Order and State by being one of the founder members of Our Ecumenical Council.

Due to his dynamic activity, enthusiastic commitment and charitable spirit Reverend Father Laszlo has left a remarkable work done in favor of the poor and needy.

Our Sovereign Order and our State is profoundly honored for having had as one of the founders of its Ecumenical Council a man of such high moral principles and human value as Reverend Father Laszlo.

His departure impoverishes us all.

His Most Eminent Highness, Prince José, as Grand Master and Head of the State, on behalf of all Knights and Dames of the Federation, expresses His most sincere and deeply felt condolences to the family of Reverend Father Laszlo Lipp, to the members of his religious community and to the Roman Catholic Church for their loss.

Requiescat in Pace.

Magisterial House on the 26th day of August of the year of Our Lord 2009
