Fr. Prosper Grech OSA
Fr. Prospero Grech OSA, a member of the Collegio Santa Monica, Rome, and of the Province of Malta, received his country's highest decoration, that of the National Order of Merit in the rank of Companion of Honor, the most prestigious rank as it permits of only three members at any one time. The award was presented in virtue of Father Grech's many achievements, especially his contributions to society as theologian, by the President of Malta, George Abela, in ceremonies at the presidential palace commemorating the 37th anniversary of Malta as a republic.
