Welcome to the Order of St. George
The Order of St. George takes its inspiration from the ancient and honourable Christian Order of Knighthood founded in 1326 by King Károly Róbert of Hungary.
St. George is revered by Christians throughout the Middle East, and is also the Patron Saint of soldiers. Our charity takes its lead from this heritage. Charitable causes we support in the UK include the Royal Hospital Chelsea and the 3rd Battalion of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment Welfare Fund (our affiliated Regiment), while in the United States we support the Green Beret Foundation.The Order of St.George Relief Corps works on the ground in Kurdistan / northern Iraq bringing vital medical aid to refugees and vulnerable communities.
We are particularly proud of our links with the Coptic community in Egypt, and with St. George’s Anglican Church in Baghdad, whose vicar emeritus, the Rev Canon Andrew White, GCStG, is our Order’s Spiritual Protector.
Members of The Order sustain its work directly by means of an annual subscription, by voluntary donations, and by actively engaging in charitable activities – large or small.
Worldwide, we welcome into membership ladies and gentlemen who wish to be involved in improving the lives of others.
