Order of Malta Australia


Gallery: Sydney Lourdes Day Mass celebrations 2017


On Saturday 3 December, the NSW Branch of the Order of Malta celebrated its annual Lourdes Day Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral.

Hundreds of malades attended this annual celebration. This special mass, which is hosted by Branches of the Order across the country,  is open to everybody, but those facing health challenges are particularly encouraged to attend.

Those attending the Mass receive a special blessing and a small bottle of Lourdes water.
