Order of Malta Grand Chancellor Albrecht von Boeselager recently visited the Order of Malta Clinic of Northern California at Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland. The Order of Malta’s Greg Allen said “his goodwill trip to the U.S. is to provide transparency and show support for all of the good that’s being done by the Order of Malta throughout the Western United States.”

The clinic provides free medical care to uninsured individuals. “It’s playing a vital role in its community – serving anyone without health insurance, including the working poor who fall through the cracks of the U.S. health care system,” Allen said.

The clinic is now in its 10th year and has served more than 25,000 patients. Allen also announced that Jesuit Father Javier Diaz, a physician, is now serving at the clinic. “He is an amazing addition to the clinic and will be a great resource for the clinic’s patients,” Allen said.
