Order of Malta Christmas Cards on sale now!


Order of Malta Christmas Card 2020

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 a painting by Polidoro da LANCIANO (Italian c. 1515-1565) The Madonna and Child with the young Saint John the Baptist, mid 16th Century. We are grateful for the opportunity to use this beautiful work of art from the collection of Kerry Stokes, Perth.

There is a Christmas greeting inside the card and a note about the Order’s history on the back cover.

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.

Please support this initiative and order your cards now to ensure prompt delivery.

$35 for a pack of 10 (plus postage)


Orders will be despatched from 30 October 2020 onwards
