Mass De Requiem

September 7 2022 

This morning, members of the Maltese Association, together with the members of the Order from the Federal Association USA, Dr. Domenico Musso KM, Chris Murphy Esq. KM, Brandon Brown KM and Phil Mauro KM, gathered in the sacristy of St John’s Co-Cathedral at 8:00, to robe for the Mass.

Mass De Requiem was celebrated at 8.30 a.m. by the Principal Chaplain, The Very Rev. Mgr Gatt, in memory of the fallen of the Great Siege in 1565. This was followed by the blessing of the monument to the fallen and in the Chapel of Auvergne, the sepulchral slab of Don Melchior de Robles was blessed, to remember this iconic hero of the Great Siege.


The last stage in the procession was at the Crypt of the Grand Masters where prayers were said at the tomb of Grand Master Jean Parisot de Valette. Prayers were also said for the repose of the soul of Grand Master Matthew Festing, who was buried in the crypt last year.

The President of the Maltese Association, H.E. Marchesino Daniel de Petri Testaferrata laid a wreath at the end of the religious service.
