Meeting of the Lazarus Alliance (October 2006)
The first week of October also saw another annual meeting of the Saint Lazarus Alliance. The Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus was represented by its Master General and the Chancellor of the Grand Priory of the Mediterranean. The Malta Obedience of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem was represented by Dr. Freidrich Schubert, the Grand Chancellor, who flew in from Austria specifically for the Alliance meeting and also by Dame Helen Meli Attard.
This meeting was unfortunately the first Alliance meeting without the presence of the Vicar General, Chevalier Reginald Attard, who passed away earlier this year. (In the below photograph, one can see the previous year’s Alliance Meeting with the presence of Chevalier Attard) The Master General of the Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus also visited the Attard family and offered the Order’s condolences on the loss of such a great personality in the Lazarite world.
