About the Order of St John
The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem is an international Order of Chivalry with roots in the medieval past. While its beginnings are to be found in the work of medieval monastic knights known as the Knights Hospitallers, its present-day mission is to prevent and relieve sickness and injury, and to act to enhance the health and well-being of people of all races and creeds anywhere in the world.
The tradition of involvement with the people of the Holy Land continues through the Order’s work with and support of The St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital.
