This website contains general information about the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, with particular reference to its North American Lieutenancies. It is maintained by the Order's North Central US Lieutenancy and is intended primarily as a source of information about the Order for the general public, and of links to the Lieutenancy websites maintained by our own and other US Lieutenancies.
For various reasons, it had become necessary for us to move the registration of our internet domains and the hosting of the sites associated with them to a new Internet Services Provider. The move has now taken place for this site, and we had not expected it to result in any interruption of service for our public websites, though we know that there were transient problems during the transfer of our Lieutenancy site. We apologize if you had any problems finding this site during the transition.
We previously also kept our own Lieutenancy contact and other information on this site, but our non-specific domain name seems to have resulted in our Officers receiving an increasing number of email messages, telephone calls, and (occasionally) even checks which should have been directed to other US Lieutenancies. The Lieutenancy website for the North Central US Lieutenancy is now to be found at http://eohsjnorthcentral.org. If you are looking for specific information about the Order's activities elsewhere in the United States, links to a map showing the territories covered by and links to the websites of all the US Lieutenancies can be found in the dropdown 'Contact Information' menu above and on our Links Page. The Links Page also includes links to the sites of some international Lieutenancies.
The narrated slide presentation on the situation of the Christians in the Holy Land which has been available from our Holy Land Page since 2013 has been replaced by a video of a new presentation, given to the seminarians at Borromeo Seminary in Cleveland in March 2016. A fourth volume in our series of educational booklets containing articles and the text of speeches and statements by many authorities on the problems encountered by Christians in the Holy Land was also published late last year, and may be viewed or downloaded from the Holy Land Page.
If you were last here some time ago, you will see that we have given the site an entirely new look. We hope that you agree that this enhances its appearance. We have made very few changes to its structure or content, so you should still find it easy to locate the information you want. Please take some time to explore it, and let the know about any links which take you to an error page or to somewhere other than you expect, any factual, grammatical, or spelling errors you spot on the site, and/or any other problems you may have browsing it.
Particularly if you are a Member of the Order, please also let the have any suggestions for changes in the contents, appearance or structure of the site which you think would make it more attractive and/or more useful to you or to the browsing public.
