Order of Malta Australia


Gallery: Subpriory of the Immaculate Conception’s Annual February Retreat in Victoria


Twice a year Members of the Subpriory of the Immaculate Conception attend a three day retreat.

The Subpriory of the Immaculate Conception is a spiritual community within the Australian Association of the Order of Malta, founded in 2007 in the tradition of Subpriories and Grand Priories that have enriched the history of the Order. The Subpriory assists its members in leading a life of spirituality and in being a strong, shining light to other members in practising the charisms of our Order (tuitio fidei et obsequium pauperum).

The most recent retreat was held in Victoria from Thursday 28 February 2019 to Saturday 2 March 2019. View our gallery of images from this event.

Visit our Events section for more information about the next retreat.
