Sovereign Order of St. John of Jerusalem
Knights Hospitaller ~ Victoria Commandery

What We Do

The Sovereign Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller is a non-political, ecumenical, international Christian organization directly descended from the Order of St. John founded in the late 11th century.

Before the Crusades, a hostel had been established to provide respite for pilgrims visiting the Holy Land. During the first Crusade this hostel was converted to a hospital to serve both pilgrims and crusaders.

The membership of the Victoria Commandery of the Sovereign Order of St. John comprise persons with extensive background of voluntary contribution to a variety of charitable organizations in our community, and elsewhere, working for the betterment of those who are in need.
