Fra’ Gerard died in Jerusalem. He was the founder and first Grand Master of the Order of Malta one of the oldest religious orders of the Catholic Church.

A mission today more relevant than ever as testified by medical, social and humanitarian commitment in 120 countries. To serve the si ck and the poor is the gift that Fra’ Gerard left us and for which we remember him on this important anniversary.
