|The Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller, is an ecumenical Christian Order with a focus on charity. We are dedicated to preserving the Christian faith and for service to humanity. Established in 1048AD by the Blessed Brother Gerard at the time of the Crusades, the Order began as a hospice for pilgrims and the local population and served people of all faiths.

The best intelligence places the original hospital near the present-day Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The OSJ remains among the oldest chivalric and religious organizations in the world. The Order’s motto: Pro Fide, Pro Utilitate Hominum (For Faith, For Service to Humanity) serves as a member’s moral compass and is upheld by all OSJ members while they strive to serve the sick, poor, and the needy worldwide to the best of their ability.
