Celebrating Christmas by being of service to others

05/01/2024 


On the Wednesday before Christmas Order of Malta volunteers, Maria and Maddie, prepared a Christmas feast for our guests at the Community Care Kitchen in Bondi.

On the menu was tempura prawns, cherries and roast Turkey. They even set out Christmas crackers for our guests.

The kicthen continues to go from strength to strength with a strong sense of community established. There are a number of regular guests and a full volunteer roster.

In Brisbane, members, family and friends of the Order of Maltawere active in service to guests of Emmanuel City Mission (ECM)for a spectacular Christmas Eve lunch that included carved leg ham, jacket potatoes, salad and Christmas pudding.

Brisbane had turned on one of its sultry summer days, resulting in a huge thunderstorm as lunch was served. Close to one hundred guests were safely dry and enjoying wonderful fellowship and a generous lunch.
On Christmas morning, members again served visitors to ECM with a veritable feast of bacon, eggs, ham, sausages, mince pies, shortbreads, Christmas cake and so much more. So much was provided that takeaways for all was a must.
Guests spoke of their thanks for the opportunity to be together with people who care for them at a time that can be emotionally traumatising. One lady spoke of the miracle provided to her by the gifts she had received both physically and in fellowship.
