Ideals of Knighthood

  • To provide an opportunity for the practice of ecumenical Christianity.
  • To encourage and promote Christian humanitarian work and charity generally, but especially in support of people in the Middle East.
  • To promote the spiritual and moral strengthening of mankind in accordance with the first great principle of the Order embodied in the motto:

    "Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto Thy Name give glory."

  • To support the precepts of Christian Chivalry.
  • To investigate and emulate the historical ideals of the ancient Order.
  • To form and administer establishments, councils, associations, centers or other subordinate bodies to facilitate the work of the Order in all geographical areas.
  • To maintain contact and develop collaboration with kindred Orders and bodies.
  • To establish and maintain libraries and museums, and to collect works of art and objects of historical interest to the Order.
OSMTH’s raison d’etre is expressed through the Brussels Declaration: “Aiding humanity on the pilgrimage through life.”
