Welcome

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 KMLJ. 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.

Aid to Ukraine

Our Grand Chancellor has advised that the Grand Bailiwick of the Czech Republic has organized a humanitarian fundraising effort for Ukraine. One hundred per cent of the proceeds will be used for refugees and for the purchase of humanitarian material. We ask that your jurisdiction help our members of the Order and others from Ukraine. They desperately need our help. The poster  below contains the specific details about making a donation, including the bank EUR account number of their jurisdiction: IBAN: CZ68 0300 0000 0002 5493 9405/ SWIFT: CEKOCZPP
The name of the donor, the name of the jurisdiction and the password “Ukraine 2022” must be entered in the payment note. This is a very transparent system, and details of the donations made on behalf of the Order will be circulated on a regular basis.
