On the 31st of October last, members of the First Aid Team of the Order of Malta from Germany, together with local medical staff and volunteers brought service in Medjugorje for the current year to a conclusion. Fr. Tomislav Pervan presided over the concluding Holy Mass and Blessing.
During the summer months for the past ten years, the Order of Malta has provided medical care for the pilgrims. This year alone, from the 1st of May to the 31st of October, they attended to more than 5000 patients from approximately 50 countries.
The Knights of Malta invite volunteers who wish to be involved in this service to make advance contact in sufficient time. (See: http://www.malteser.de) (Interview: in preparation)
