Welcome to the official web site of the Western USA Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
Here will be found a rich resource for anyone interested in learning more about the Order, its mission and history. With links to the Vatican, and to the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, one can explore our connection to those important institutions. We will also provide information about the nine diocesan Areas in our Lieutenancy making the news in your Diocese available online to you.
In response to the expressed desire and needs of the Knights and Ladies of the Western Lieutenancy this site will serve as a source of information concerning the current activities in the Western Lieutenancy, about the Christians we support in the Holy Land including their schools, clinics, Bethlehem University, and other institutions. Here, too, you will find more information about the Western Lieutenancy's efforts to enhance the sanctification of its members through a variety of spiritual resources including Rosary prayer groups, Justice and Peace items, Pilgrimages, days of Recollection and other special spiritual activities. Here, access to the Lieutenancy newsletter will also be found. In time we will minimize printing and mailing of this information saving money to better carry out our mission to the Holy Land.
This website provides a secure membership link for meeting registration and for facilitating online contributions.
I am very proud of the redesign of this website. I think you will find it helpful in following the activities and focus of the Lieutenancy. Like the Lieutenancy itself, it is a work in progress, dynamic and adjusting toward improvement. I encourage you to access this site on a regular basis.
We continue to renew all things in Christ.

Lieutenant, Western USA Lieutenancy
