Welcome to The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem's Acadia Commandery in the Grand Priory in Canada
Whether you are a member of the Grand Priory in Canada or from some other international jurisdiction, or are a member of the Acadia Commandery, we are pleased that you stopped by. For those who call the Acadia Commandery home, you will notice a number of new features and resources have been added to the site and we wish to invite you to take full advantage of them.
If you have an interest in ancient history, or have a desire to 'give something back' to community or desire to help people in need through making their lives a little better through physical, mental or spiritual support, Acadia Commandery can offer these opportunities to help you make Canada a little better, and making you feel as if you've made a difference. The Commandery is comprised of three avenues to serve which may attract your attention and interest: a) a military/historical one; b) hospitaller one; and c) an ecumenical one.
