On 25th January 2024, Order of Malta members and friends shared an online Rosary for the Repose of the Soul of Confrère Antony ‘Tony’ J. Macken AM KGCMG(Ob) GCM KCOM, Former President of the Australian Association.

Former President Confrère Jim Dominguez KCSG CBE AM KGCMG(Ob) GOM shared a brief Eulogy honouring his dear friend’s exemplary legacy of faith, family values, legal expertise, sage leadership, and humble noblesse oblige.

Over thirty Order of Malta Members and friends, from across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and South Africa, prayed the Glorious Mysteries, before sharing fond memories of our respected Confrère.

May Confrère Tony Macken Rest in Peace. May his family and friends find comfort through Christ.
