The plaque was given by Pope Benedict XVI with his apostolic blessings to all 16 Singapore Dames and Knights of the Order, to inspire them in their service to humanity and to God.
The promulgation of the Singapore Association of the Order of Malta was celebrated at High Mass at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd on Feb 19. A thousand worshippers attended the Mass, which was celebrated by Archbishop Nicholas Chia, the Conventual's Chaplain of the Singapore Order of Malta and Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Salvatore Pennacchio.
