Ranks of the Order

The Grand Knight is the sole authority for awarding the various ranks of the Order of Saint George the Great Martyr and the ranks of the Order of the Holy Spirit.  Ranks can be granted by the Grand Knight at any time regardless of position. Ranks are not awarded freely but are rather earned through hard meritorious work and dedication to the Holy Orthodox Church and to the goals and objectives of the Order.
