2023 National Chapter attendees at the Investiture Service in Canberra at St Paul’s
The Australian Grand Priory of the Military and Hospitaller Order of St Lazarus of Jerusalem
This is about the Grand Priory of Australia, a Jurisdiction of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem under the governance of the Grand Master, His Excellency Don Francisco de Borbon, Graf von Hardenberg GCLJ(J), 50th Grand Master. The Grand Prior of the Grand Priory in Australia is The Hon. Chevalier Gavin Fielding AM GCLJ GCMLJ. The Order of Saint Lazarus is an Order of Chivalry. It is wholly Christian, ecumenical, and has Christian unity as an objective. Its members are committed to seek to live their lives with strength, simplicity, and charity in a manner that embodies the Christian spirit that has enlivened the Order for nearly a thousand years. The Order is, in part, a Hospitaller Order and so its objective will always be that members serve to alleviate the plight of the sick and poor, whether they suffer a deficiency in spiritual or physical health or poverty of means to live with dignity. The Order is, in part, a Military Order and so each office-bearer undertakes the duties allotted and becomes the officer primarily responsible for their fulfillment earning the support and active assistance of fellow members.
