TV The Knights Templar International Homepage
Since 1998, a number of Grand Priories in Europe and the USA have come together to form a new umbrella body, OSMTH International, which became a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations in 2002. This body has established working relationships with leaders of the various Christian Churches in Jerusalem and is supporting peace initiatives between the faith communities in the Holy Land, as well as donating to humanitarian aid programmes in Africa and the Middle and Far East. Taking its cue from the original purpose of the medieval Knights Templar in protecting pilgrims travelling in the Holy Land, the Grand Priory of England & Wales' particular contribution to worldwide Templary today is through its associated registered charity, the Templar Pilgrimage Trust. The trust provides grants for the young and the disabled to go on pilgrimages to places as far apart as Iona, Walsingham, Taize, Lourdes, Compostella, Assisi, Rome and Jerusalem.
