“Faith is the act of the intellect assenting to a Divine truth owing to the movement of the will, which is itself moved by the grace of God”

– St. Thomas Aquinas


Men of the Knights of St. John live out their Catholic faith that what they believe influences the way they live their lives.

For in hope we were saved. Now hope that sees for itself is not hope. For who hopes for what one sees?

Romans 8:24


Bestowed on us at Baptism, hope can be defined as a future good, difficult to obtain, but entirely possible. Hope sustains the men of the Knights of S. John through periods of trial, tragedy, and difficulty, that one day we will see the glory of God.

….Amen I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.

Matthew 25:40


From the Latin caritas, men of the Knights of St. John are devoted to acts of charity, both personally and within the order. The habits of charity exist not only in the love for God, but also extends to the love of our neighbor.
