Message of Welcome

 

Welcome to the only official homepage of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, Malta. This homepage has been designed to give any person interested a clearer view of the history, the heraldry and the aims of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, an international Order of Chivalry, whose beginnings go back almost 900 years. The Order has enjoyed a separate identity and social and national independence for more than 900 years, as our tradition dates from the year 1098. This fact allows the Order to maintain its humanitarian traditions in a spirit of constant renewal and progress.

 

We believe that the Order's challenging objective of protecting and alleviating human suffering wherever it is found, can be enhanced and ameliorated by international communication and collaboration. With this aim, I invite you to browse our site and discover more about our brotherhood and our continuing efforts to reach out to those of our global society most in need. Our web site is meant for all who are concerned with solidarity and humanitarian problems - whether they are members or not and who want to participate in our actions or collaborate through their suggestions.

 

You will find the widest possible range if information on our noble association. Although the Order has existed for 900 years, it is constantly looking to the future and our modern communications technology offers you the opportunity of making contact and directly accessing information on the reality and the history of our international community with its large amount of ancient tradition. In these web pages you will find all the information that you need on those facilities and interesting details of our institutions, charities and public services, with the aim of showing all those who honour us with their visit by electronic means, the fullest possible picture of our community. Please take a moment to browse our pages and learn more about our membership, current leadership and world wide activities. We are sure to have something to interest you.

 

If you did not know our brotherhood before, you will realise that in spite of our small size we are active in a lot of fields (leprosy, health, first aid, social help, assisting disabled, supporting people in need) and in many countries. Our site will enlighten you about our national and international activities. Feel free to surf on this link in the humanitarian solidarity chain, and may this means of communication incite you to join our brotherhood or share its ideals. We look forward to hearing from you.
