Knights Templar Information page
Today, the Knights Templar display their courage and goodwill in other ways. They organize fund-raising activities such as breakfasts, dinners, dances, and flea markets. They support Masonic-related youth groups and they raise millions of dollars for medical research and educational assistance.
Currently, Templar membership consists of people from all walks of life, including doctors, lawyers, clergy, businessmen and entertainment personalities, all of whom profess a belief in the Christian Religion.
Three Levels Of The Knights Templar
To petition a Commandery of Knights Templar for membership, you must first be a member of a Masonic Lodge and a Chapter of Royal Arch Masons, and must profess a belief In the Christian Religion. Commanderies organize many social activities, including Ladies Auxiliaries, Drill Competitions, Public Divine Services, Family Picnics, Organized Trips, Dinner Parties and Entertainments, Christmas Observances, Easter Sunrise Services, and Memorial Services.
The Knights Templar Educational
In recent years, some Grand Commanderies have also been offering Scholarship Grants to students who are members of Masonic-related Youth Groups.
The Knights Templar Holy Land Pilgrimage
In addition to the many religious
observances throughout the year, The Grand Encampment of Knights Templar sponsors an
annual "Holy Land Pilgrimage". The purpose of the pilgrimage is to send a
Christian Minister to The Holy Land. Masonic membership is not required and the
Minister can be male or female.
