On 28 and 29 July 2023 the German Grand Bailiwick will celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Order in Germany in the city of Gotha with a colourful programme and in the presence of our Grand Master. The Grand Bailiff Chev. Clemens Stroetmann GCLJ cordially invites you to this event.
You can download the programme including the registration form here. You can also register easily at www.st-lazarus-orden.de/gotha.
A special highlight on Saturday evening will be a charity ball in aid of the German Lazarus Foundation with live music. The foundation will use the funds raised primarily to support Dr Remy Rousselot's leprosy hospital in Bhubaneswar, India. The Foundation and our close partner the Hilfswerk Deutscher Zahnärzte (German Dentists' Aid Foundation, HDZ) have worked closely with this project for many years.
Please feel free to forward the invitation to the members of your jurisdictions. We want to celebrate the anniversary in a fitting manner and would like to take this opportunity to thank the city of Gotha and especially the Lord Mayor for his support.
If possible, please register by 20 June. Due to limited space, places will be allocated according to registration.
