Order's Values Depicted through Photography

One of the events organised by the French Province of the  Hospitaller Order of St John of God to celebrate Hospitaller Family Year was a competition illustrating the Order's values. The results were announced on 9 June, 2012 during the celebration closing the Hospitaller Family Year. The competition was open to all the Brothers, Co-workers and residents in St John of God facilities, and each entry had to depict people in action in the St John of God facilities, each symbolising a particular value.

 To help the entrants produce their work, they were give an extract of the letter from the Superior General of the Order, in which he recalled the values and their significance. These are the values selected, together with the prizewinners in each case.

Hospitality in the manner of St John of God has to be viewed as THE value par excellence, encompassing the following values which, in one way or another, embody it.
