Fr. Gérard had the opportunity to meet many of our German members and benefactors during his home leave late last year. Special highlights were his visits to Malteser-Hilfsdienst in Landsberg (Father Gérard was formerly their district commissioner), Caritas Homenursing Services of Schwandorf district (where he had helped establish their nursing training), Descartes High School in Neuburg (which is one of our most faithful benefactors through the consistent help of Mrs Albertine Sporer ), Malteser-Hilfsdienst Regensburg (where Father was the Diocesan director of nursing), Malteser-Hilfsdienst München (where Dr. Albrecht Count of Rechberg and Mr Manfred Schulz keep their supporting hands under us), Malteser-Hilfsdienst Secretariate General in Cologne (where Father met Baron Heereman, who played a vital role in the acknowledgement of our organisation by the Order of Malta, Heinz Himmels and Peter Wittmann), St. Kilian's Parish in Mainhausen (where Father Michael Eich had arranged a meeting of all local members of our Brotherhood), St. George's Parish in Amberg (where Father met our member Father Werner Sulzer),
Malteser-Hilfsdienst in Traunstein (where our members Max and Gabi Rauecker always provide unmatched hospitality)
and last but not least to Father Gérard's father, brother and sister, who are all members of our Brotherhood (but of course, he enjoyed the family side of it too).
