It is with great honour and privilege that I now assume the position as Lord Prior of our Order. I am humbled by being selected and appointed to this role and willingly accept the significant responsibility that comes with it. I wish to extend warm congratulations and sincere thanks to our retiring Lord Prior Sir Malcolm Ross for his dedicated and indefatigable work for the Order and those we support. In the 45 years I have been active with St John I have always been impressed by the quality of the people who serve and the dedication each shows to serving our masters the poor and sick. I see my task now serving you, so together we can all do more for those in most need. I’m excited to be working with all in the Order in this new role to make our great Order even better.
