The Order of Malta has a long history of caring for the sick and poor in body and spirit, a concept that is alive and well at the Cathedral of Christ the Light.
Local doctors volunteer at the Order of Malta Clinic to provide high-quality primary care services for the uninsured poor and those in need.
The Order of Malta Clinic is a special place where volunteer doctors and the Catholic Diocese of Oakland have come together to provide much needed free health care services in our community.
