Spiritual is a Templar
The religious course is not mandatory, we only offer religious historical work...
In a House called commandery, there are:
the Master of the House, a chaplain, the orator, the knights, the squires and the Sergeant-Novice.
To become a Templar is to enter into Brotherhood and in all absolute humility, to work collectively for the Glory of our Lord non nobis domine sed nomini tuo da gloriam not in our name Lord, not in Our name, but in the name of Your glory.
We bring together all religious beliefs.
Our Order brings together all people from any social universe, because for us alone spirit and faith count, we are all Sisters and Brothers.
Opening the door of the Order
To join us, we need to meet the person, interviews, We will ask you to be sure of your approach.
We do not say: I do not agree with you my Brother,
But rather : I do not think like you, my Brother.
Nothing is mandatory.
To become a Templar is to accept to be a humanist and to reach out to one's neighbor.
Be received into the Order
The reception is made only in the presence of a formative Brother.
The Reception Ceremony is a very important moment.
The reception is a privilege made in the sharing of all Sisters and Brothers.
For this, it is necessary to be : Free and of good morals.
Sponsorship: the request must be made only during the General Chapter and you must have been a knight for at least one year (only the Abbot authorizes the sponsorship). The Monk Friars acts as godfathers for all the Templars.
