Official Launch of the Commandery of Cyprus Website
A message from the Commandery of Cyprus
Dear fellow Templars, followers and supporters, it is with great pleasure that we are able to announce the official launch of the Commandery of Cyprus website. Founded by the honourable Commander of Cyprus and Grand Herald, Francis Haggerty; the Commandery of Cyprus is the official home of our branch within the OSMTJ. Thanks to the support and approval of our Orders' leadership, we intend to represent all that our ancestors stood for; bravery, honour and integrity.
We'd like to give a special thanks to our Preceptor Prior's son for his design of our crest and to our Order's Master, General Ronald S. Mangum for making our Commandery a possibility.
The Knights Templar are an ancient Order, initially established to provide protection to pilgrims travelling throughout the Holy Land. Their presence in Cyprus was an eventful one, and we fully intend to provide further information relating to their activities whilst here, as well as the part that Cyprus played in the Crusades.
In the mean time however, we'll leave you with a message taken from Micah 6:8
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
