Easter greetings from Austria

The leadership of the Order wishes you and your families a blessed Easter.

I am very pleased that our organisation is charitably active in Austria. Lower Austria, Carinthia, Tyrol and Vienna have been working diligently over the past few months and also over the holidays. Every fortnight a relief train leaves Vienna for the East to support children’s hospitals. Many thanks to FoP and Mr Wernbacher as well as our esteemed Renate Kohlross for their help.

We will have some international investments this year: United Kingdom in Chichester, Germany, Serbia in Belgrade, Austria in Tyrol, investments in Italy and the foundation of the Priory South Africa are planned for the autumn. Internationally, we are delighted with the great success of the Brazilian Priory and the good contact with Argentina, Australia and New Zealand. In autumn, the Maltese Priory is organising a symposium and investiture of new members.

A week ago, we had the opportunity to get to know our brothers and sisters from Poznan at the farewell of our longstanding member Dr Marian Król and to make initial contacts.

You can see how much we are prospering. This is largely thanks to the efforts of all of us in the Grand Priory of Austria.

Once again, I wish you all a blessed festive season

I greet you warmly

Dr Alexander Graff de Pancsova
