Paul Lawless Gives Back to the Catholic Community
The Order of Malta is a Roman Catholic religious order committed to glorifying God, where each of its members illustrates devotion to Catholicism by helping those suffering from poverty or illness. The worldwide order launched its American headquarter in 1927 in New York City, making it the tenth National Association of the Order and the first in the Western Hemisphere.
Paul Lawless, a Knight of Malta, shows his commitment to the Catholic faith by volunteering his services with the Birthline/Lifeline Pregnancy Care Centers throughout Palm Beach County. The center assists women with unplanned pregnancies find alternatives to abortion. Their services range from providing these women with counseling and medical referrals to education on infant care, child development and critical thinking. The center also offers services relevant to women who are not with child by providing free pregnancy tests along with education on birth control methods and sexually transmitted diseases.
His loyalty to the Catholic faith does not end with his assistance at the pregnancy centers. Paul Lawless and his wife, Lynn, are both active Stewards of Saint Peter with the Papal Foundation. The foundation invites dedicated American Catholics nationwide to become Stewards and further continue to represent the Catholic faith and what it stands for.
Aside from his religious services, Paul Lawless supports several other charitable organizations. His work with the Florida Highway Patrol Advisory Council and The One Hundred is notable. The advisory council is comprised of business, professional and community leaders throughout the state of Florida who assist and reveal insight on the performance of the Patrol, including the level of quality in its service to the public.
