About us

The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem is a lay institution placed under the protection of the Holy See. Its main aim is to strengthen among its members the practice of Christian life, to sustain and aid the charitable, cultural and social works and institutions of the Catholic Church in the Holy Land, particularly those of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, which also includes Cyprus and Jordan, thus supporting the Christian presence in the Lands of the Bible.

At present the Order  is comprised of an estimated 30,000 members,  organized among more than 60 Lieutenancies and Magistral Delegations present in almost 40 countries worldwide. The contributions made by members of the Order are one of the Latin Patriarchate‚Äôs  main sources of funding.
