Order of Malta Australia


Video: Highlights from the 2017 National Assembly


The Australian Association of the Order of Malta held it’s Biennial National Assembly from 23 to 25 June in Brisbane, Queensland. One hundred and thirty six members of the Order from around Australia, together with visitors from New Zealand and Hong Kong, attended the Assembly.

Remembering the Forgotten was the theme of the conference which was addressed by His Grace Archbishop Mark Coleridge, Chief Chaplain ad interim of the Order in Australia and scholars from the Australian Catholic University. Other presentations included briefings on the works of the Order in Timor-Leste and Asia and on the Sub-Priory of the Immaculate Conception. Eight members of the order took their Vow of Obedience during a Vigil Service and sixteen new Members from Australia and four from New Zealand were invested as Knights or Dames of the Order at an Investiture Mass held on the Feast of St John.

A combination of stimulating speakers, solemn and uplifting Church Services and a number of social functions, which facilitated great fellowship, resulted in a positive, informative, fruitful and successful Assembly.
