Members of the New South Wales Commandery hosted in Sydney on 12 March 2014  a Dinner to farewell their Commandery Chaplain, His Eminence Cardinal George Pell, EGCLJ, prior to his departure to Rome, to take his new position to oversee the finances of the Holy See and Vatican City State. The National Chaplain of the Grand Priory of Australia, Monsigneur Anthony K. Toms, flew from Melbourne to speak on this special occasion and to propose the Toast to His Eminence, who responded with his whit and good humour. 
Cardinal Pell has been a member to the Order of Saint Lazarus for thirty years and was a founding member of the Victorian Commandery.
