The Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard is most honoured and grateful, that Mrs. Kalkwarf's exemplary devotion as a Dedicated Member of the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard as the South African Relief Organisation of the Order of Malta has been acknowledged in such an extraordinary way.
She will be the first South African to be invested as a member of the Order of Malta.
The ceremony will take place on Sunday, 9 July 2000, at 10:00 a.m. in Blessed Gérard's Church in 61 Anderson Road, Mandeni, South Africa.
The investiture will be officiated by His Excellency, the Grand Hospitaller of the Order of Malta, Albrecht Baron Boeselager.
The celebration will at the same time be the Blessing and Opening of the new building of Blessed Gérard's Community Development Centre and the Additions to Blessed Gérard's Care Centre and Hospice and the official inauguration of our two new projects: Blessed Gérard's Disaster Relief Project and Blessed Gérard's Children's Home.
