Merito Melitensi Medal Awarded

A Merito Melitensi Bronze Medal was awarded to Evelyn Murray and presented by Angus Hay in St Mary’s Cathedral, Aberdeen, in the presence of Bishop Hugh Gilbert.

The award was made in recognition of the support and assistance she has given to the Community Meals Project at the Cathedral, managed by St. Columba’s Parish (Banchory) in a joint project with the Companions, as well as the charitable work she has carried out for over forty years with the St. Vincent de Paul charity.

Recognition is also given to her commitment during the lockdowns when she distributed food and clothing to the needy in conjunction with the Companions, often in inclement weather.

This is the first time in 500 years that such a presentation has been made of an Order of Malta Medal in a Catholic Church in the presence of a Catholic Bishop in Aberdeen.
