The Order of St John formally known as The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem, is a royal order of chivalry first constituted as such by royal charter from Queen Victoria in 1888.

Its work follows the twin mottos of Pro Fide and Pro Utilitate Hominum (for the faith and in the service of humanity).

The Order of St John is a Christian Order, found on Christian principles and what we do is motivated by Christian ideals. However, we warmly welcome people of any faith or of no faith, who are motivated to share in our mission.
