    Fra’ John T. Dunlap is the new Lieutenant of the Grand Master

    Fra’ John T. Dunlap, member of the Sovereign Council, was appointed by Pope Francis Lieutenant of the Grand Master of the Sovereign Order of Malta. He succeeds Fra’ Marco Luzzago who passed away on 7 June last.
    In his letter of appointment, Pope Francis states that ‘the sudden departure of the Lieutenant of the Grand Master, Fra’ Marco Luzzago, a few months before the celebration of the Extraordinary Chapter General, brings the Order of Malta to a new moment of dismay and uncertainty. Pope Francis’ decision will allow the Order of Malta to accelerate the reform process and return to an ordinary administration under a Grand Master soon afterwards. The Order of Malta is grateful to the Holy Father for his paternal solicitude.
    The new Lieutenant Grand Master together with the Pope’s Special Delegate and the Sovereign Council will continue the process of constitutional reform of the Sovereign Order of Malta.
