Order of Malta Australia


Order of Malta Christmas Cards now available to order


$35 for a pack of 10 (plus postage)

We are all living in an age that is increasingly secular and sadly Christmas cards with the image of Jesus Christ are becoming scarce. By sending loved ones a personal Christmas  card celebrating the birth of Jesus you have the opportunity to respond to the challenge and effectively defend our faith with this simple gesture. 

Every year since the early 1980s, the Australian Association of the Order, has been providing an Annual Christmas Card for use by Members. It always maintained the same theme, an image of the Madonna and Child Jesus with his cousin John, very familiar to us as John the Baptist, the Patron Saint of our Order. 


This year on the front cover we have The Virgin and Child with St. John the Baptist, Unknown Italian (c. 1750), after Raphael.

On the back of the card is a not about the Order’s history and inside there is a Christmas greeting that reads:

‘May the Joy and Peace of Christmas be with you throughout the Year’

Members, Candidates and friends of the Australian Association are urged to support the spiritual and charitable work of the Order by ordering these exceptional cards.


Orders will be despatched by 30 October 2022 onwards.
