Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”


Welcome to the new blog for the Conventual Church of Saint John of Jerusalem.

As a first post, we include below some photographs from the Mass for the re-establishment of the Grand Priory of England on St John's Day, 23rd June 1993, and the Installation of Fra' Matthew Festing as 55th Grand Prior, in the presence of the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Luigi Barbarito, members of the hierarchy of England, and much of English Catholic society.

As many will know, Fra' Matthew is now Grand Master of the Order.

Please pray for the humanitarian and spiritual works of the Order of Malta.

Sancta Maria de Phileremo, ora pro nobis.
Sancte Joannes Baptista, ora pro nobis.
