The Projects

The Projects of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem financed by the Order in 2007.

Thanks to the contributions it receives from its members in Lieutenancies all over the world, the Order supports the activities and running costs of the Latin Patriarchate in Jerusalem.

In particular, this means providing for the maintenance of the priests and nuns in the Patriarchate’s 90 parishes, funding the Seminary, paying school fees for the Christian students who attend the 40 patriarchal schools and financing the Patriarchate’s renovation and maintenance projects for parish churches and schools.

In addition, every year, the Knights and Ladies of the Order send a substantial donation to be used for humanitarian aid and medical supplies for those Catholic families in greatest need.

In 2007 the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem financed additionally 8 projects to the extent of $ 1,398,000 (€ 1,030,000). The majority consisted of the construction of parish and school centres, the school renovations and the refurbishment of parish halls and presbyteries.
