Letter from the Grand Knight
Dear visitors, on behalf of the Holy Orthodox Order of Saint George the Great Martyr, I welcome you to our official website!
I am pleased that you are interested in the Order and in the Christian tradition of chivalric knighthood, a tradition that stretches over 1,000 years.
As we look for viable ways to help and support our Orthodox brothers and sisters in need, it is my hope as Grand Knight, that you will consider joining the Order as a fellow Knight or Dame and assist us in our service towards those least among us.
Saint Paul the Apostle said in 1st Corinthians 12:26 “When one member suffers, all the members suffer with it. Or when one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.” Equally to Saint Paul, our Lord God and Savior, Jesus Christ, is also recorded as saying in Acts 20:35 that: “it is more blessed to give then to receive.” This is the very spirit of Christian chivalry.
Today with so many crises in the world and threats to our Orthodox Christian tradition ever more present, the Order of Saint George the Great Martyr provides a tangible way to manifest one’s faith. As members of the Order we are in service to Christ, His Church and His people wherever they need us most. We strive to be a true voice for the voiceless.
I encourage you to explore our website further to learn more about who we are and what we wish to accomplish.
In service to Christ,
Grand Knight of the Holy Orthodox
Order of Saint George the Great Martyr
