The Czech Grand Bailiwick is very sad to announce the death of the Chaplain-General of the jurisdiction, His Eminence Miloslav Cardinal Vlk, EGCLJ at the age of 83 years.  Cardinal Vlk was for many years president of the European Bishops‘ Conference, chairman of the Bishops' Conference of the movement Focolare and archbishop of Prague. He was a close friend of Pope Francis. He took his function as the senior chaplain of our jurisdiction very seriously. He was not only interested in the activities of our hospices, but was in regular contact with each commandery. Our Father Cardinal will be greatly missed.
