Order of Malta


A lay religious order of the Catholic Church since 1113, the Order of Malta is active in 120 countries caring for people in need through its medical, social and humanitarian works.

Day-to-day, its broad spectrum of social projects provides a constant support for forgotten or excluded members of society. Here at St. James's, the Companions of the Order of Malta, composed of a large team of volunteers, use our Social Centre to provide a safe space, support, food and advice to the homeless.
