60th International Pilgrimage
The 2018 International Pilgrimage to Lourdes marked the 60th anniversary of the Order of Malta’s annual reunion. More than 7500 members, volunteers, doctors, nurses, chaplains and guests from over 45 countries, including the recently invested members from Korea, joined in prayer, procession and celebration of the 160th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady. 
The pilgrimage enthusiastically welcomed the newly elected Prince and Grand Master, Fra’ Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto.
Vision 2050
Over 300 young members and volunteers were hosted at the annual Vision 2050 Reunion.
H.E. Dominique Prince de La Rochefoucauld-Montbel, the Grand Hospitaller, shared his pride for the work and dedication of the young members and volunteers both in Lourdes, and their work at home serving the forgotten.
Youngman “YM” Park, President of Order of Malta Korea,spoke to the young. The assembled group joyfully welcomed YM and the new Korean members and were captivated by the account of his recent experience attending the historical meeting between the North and South Korean Presidents. YM Park further inspired the young volunteers detailing the works of the Order in Korea, partnering with celebrity chefs to prepare meals for the homeless in the slums of Seoul, and to recruit more volunteers to assist in the works.
