Provincial Priory of Worcestershire


Welcome to the Home page of the Provincial Priory of
The Masonic and Military Orders of the Temple and of St John
of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta, or
the "United Orders" as we more commonly refer to them,
are beautiful Christian masonic orders with a rich and
colourful history. They have flourished in Worcestershire
since 1857 and the Province now consists of 16 units,
known as Preceptories, situated within the old County
boundary of Worcestershire including parts of Birmingham
and the West Midlands.
The Orders are thriving and popular with meetings being
well attended. As well as experiencing some of the most
challenging and meaningful ritual in Masonry, members
enjoy a great camaraderie at meetings and large sums
are raised for the Orders' charity, the Eye Hospital of 
St John of Jerusalem.
I am privileged to be the Provincial Prior for
I hope that in visiting this site, either as a member or
interested visitor, that you will enjoy the content and
gain a greater understanding of the United Orders and
our activities.
