Knights of Saint Thomas


As we navigate the complex landscape of societal challenges, the resurgence of chivalric ideals offers a roadmap for change. Mercy, justice, and humility, ingrained in the chivalric code, become indispensable tools in our collective journey towards a more equitable and inclusive future. By consciously embracing these virtues, we empower ourselves to confront persisting inequalities and prejudices, fostering a world where the principles of chivalry guide us toward a brighter and more just tomorrow.

In the spirit of our knighthood mission, the Knights of Saint Thomas continues to uphold its primary objective of supporting those in need. Today, just as in the past, our organization diligently selects local charities to support, reflecting a range of needs within our communities. We are focused on a few significant projects, while others distribute smaller contributions across a broader spectrum of charitable causes.

Regardless of the approach, the shared joy of witnessing the positive impact on the lives of others stands as a fundamental reason for our members' deep sense of fulfillment and commitment. It is important to note that every penny contributed by our members for charitable purposes goes directly to the designated charities. The annual membership fee paid by our devoted members are utilized to cover the minimal operating costs of our organization and to provide additional financial support to the chosen charities. Additionally, we organize a variety of fundraising events and campaigns. The net proceeds from these initiatives are channeled directly to the charities we support, ensuring that every effort is dedicated to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need.

At the heart of our Order lies a genuine dedication to serving humanity, guided by the principles of compassion and selflessness. Through our collective efforts, we continue to embody the noble ideals of charity and kindness, bringing hope and relief to the sick and impoverished, embodying the true spirit of our mission.
