Priory of St. Louis the Crusader

The Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem ®


The Investiture ceremony is a formal event where approved applicants receive the accolade (dubbing) and are accorded the honor of becoming a Knight or a Dame of the order during a sacred Ceremony known as a Convent and Investiture (C&I). The C&I is a solemn rededication and spiritual renewal, during which new postulants (prospective members) are received into our Order. 

The Order invests membership upon only those men and women who deport themselves in an honorable and chivalrous manner, who will be committed to the Order's values and precepts, and who are Ecumenical in thought.

If you are interested in joining in our good works and you would like to be contacted by an officer of the Priory to explore what it means to be a Knight or a Dame in this faith based charitable Order, and begin the process of determining whether your membership is in our mutual interest, please visit our Contact Us page and let us know you are interested.
