The Order of St. John, an international family of charities, has named Bishop Gutiérrez an Officer. “The history and original purpose of the Order of St John - one that began over 900 years ago in a hospice for sick pilgrims in Jerusalem - continues to this day. Throughout those nine centuries, two things have remained constant and are preserved in the motto of the Order: Pro Fide (For the Faith) and Pro Utilitate Hominum (In the Service of Humanity). As it has developed into a modern charity, the Order has never forgotten its roots and the integral connection between faith and action.” .
