Order of Malta Australia


Marching for the Unborn with our Chaplains

Members and volunteers of The Order were highly visible in support of the annual Day of the Unborn Child held at St Mary’s Cathedral and along the streets of Sydney’s CBD district.  Thousands attended the Mass and participated in the march, a very public Catholic display led by three chaplains of the Order, Archbishop Anthony Fisher and supported by his Auxiliary Bishops Danny Meagher and Richard Umbers.  We were blessed to have the keynote speaker, Steve Mosher from America, join us in our reserved seats as he is also a knight of the Order.

Our volunteers were out in force as well. A highly visible and impressive Eight-Pointed Cross standard of the Order was at the front of our group which consisted of pregnant mothers, infants in prams and over 20 highly energetic young adult volunteers added to an already powerful human message of family solidarity.

We encourage you to place this annual Sydney Archdiocesan event (the Sunday nearest the Solemnity of the Annunciation on 25 March) on your must-attend calendar which places support, love, and affection for the unborn child and the sanctity of all life at the epicentre of our prayers and Defence of the Faith works.
