One of the Oldest Orders in the World

Established in 1098, the Order of Saint Lazarus is one of the oldest Orders of Chivalry in the world.  Under the spiritual protection of the Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarchate since 1841, the modern Order welcomes members from all Christian faiths.

Brought to Canada by then Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, The Honourable J. Keiller Mackay, the Grand Priory of Canada was created in 1962 by the first bilingual act in Parliament.
