“The only worthwhile striving is after the highest ideals: If you aim for an easy target, your standard will inevitably decline, and no progress is ever made, except through real effort and real suffering.” - Servant of God Fra' Andrew Bertie                                                                                                                                                 "Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God" - Saint Ignatius of Loyola


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.
