Precepts of The Order

Love, honour, and fear God, walk after his commandments.

Maintain and defend the Christian Faith and the honour, dignity and interests of our Order.

Be loyal to your Sovereign, dutiful to the Grand Master and obedient to those who rule over you.

Prefer honour to wealth.

Be just and true in word and deed.

Give no willing cause of offence to any; but, while opposing wrong and injustice, deport yourselves courteously and gently.

Assist the distressed, the widow and the fatherless.

Eschew all debasing employment, recreation and company; abhor pride and selfishness and so raise the standard of chivalrous honour, striving for the welfare of your Brethren.

5 O'clock Templar Prayer

In line with our usual observance on 25th December at 5.00pm GMT, the Grand Master's Council has considered it appropriate that a standard

form of prayer be introduced in the following words:

Preserve, O Lord our Brother Knights by land and sea and air,
and as we hold them in our thoughts, so keep them in thy care.
