Welcome to the Companions of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. We are a key volunteer force for delivering the charitable works of the Order of Malta in Great Britain. Our mission is to practise our faith and to practise charity.
Many thanks to Margaret Ann and Peter McCann for another wonderful Gala Day at Castle Craig. Among the many guests were people from the Margaret Blackwood Houses, old folks homes and other groups who all took part with gusto in the activities and superlative barbecue. It was a particular pleasure to see the two newest buses from Dial-a-Journey, bought with the aid of grants from the Companions in memory of Kathleen Welsh MBE and Fra’ Fredrik Crichton Stuart.
It was great to see Companion Caroline Paul on horseback too – all in all a wonderful day.
The Scottish Companions, led by the Delegate, David MacLure, were well-represented yesterday in the London Oratory for the patronal Mass of St John. During Mass, our Companion Richard Baillie was received into the Order. After Mass various awards were made in the Order pro Merito Melitensi: a Cross of Merit was awarded to June Beevers, secretary at Castlecraig and organiser for many years of the wonderful annual Gala Day which we all so much enjoy, and a Silver Medal to Companion Liam Hackett.
