Overview of the event

Lisa Simpson welcomed everyone, and explained the objective of the meeting: to continue the conversation started in Rome at the 900th anniversary, and to act on the recommendations from the International Strategy Meeting in Rhodes.

Participant introduced themselves and briefly described their work for the Order. This dramatically captured the significant engagement in the work being carried out by the young members and volunteers. The Grand Hospitaller, H.E. Dominique de La Rochefoucauld-Montbel, Fra’ Duncan Gallie, Sovereign Council, Simon Grenfell, Government Council, Justin Simpson, Ambassador of the Order, Raphael Vermeir, Malteser International European Board of Directors, and Chaplains of the Order, Monsignor John Armitage and Father Hugh Kennedy were present.

With the support and advice of representatives of the central governments of the Order, the meeting and the discussions were very productive, and the group was encouraged to ask questions and use the experience of those present.
