Welcome to the website of the North Central Lieutenancy!

Geographical extent of the North Central Lieutenancy

Welcome to the website of the North Central USA Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. The geographical area covered by the North Central Lieutenancy is shown in the image to the right — it includes the States of Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. If you are looking for information about the Order's activities elsewhere in the United States, links to a map showing the territories covered by and to the websites of other US Lieutenancies can be found on the dropdown 'Contacts & Links' menu above, and general information about the Order can be found on www.holysepulchre.net, a site that we also manage.

We have moved!

For various reasons, it had become necessary for us to move the registration of our internet domains and the hosting of the sites associated with them to a new Internet Services Provider, and the move has now been completed for all our domains and sites. We apologize if you had any problems reaching any of our sites during the transfer. We had not expected the move to result in any interruption of service for our public websites, but, because the Members' Area is more complex and needs to be kept secure, it was unavailable for a couple of days while the necessary files and facilities were being installed on the new site. It is now functioning normally again.

The Order's Latest Newsletter

The latest (July, 2016) edition of the Order's Newsletter is now available. Previous editions of the Newsletter and of the Order's Annual Reports (Annales) are also available from our Order News Page.

Education Pages

We have added video recordings of two of the presentations from the Columbus Investiture to those available from the Education Page, and we have updated the presentation software used to display the videos that are available from there and added options to display high definition versions (if your internet connection is fast enough), and/or to download the video files for local viewing.

2017 Pilgrimage

A detailed itinerary and booking form are now available for the Lieutenancy's next Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, which will take place from March 1 through 12, 2017. More information about our Pilgrimages can be found on our Pilgrimage page.


2016 Investiture

Preparations for the 2016 Investiture in Oak Brook, IL, are well under way. Please see the Investiture website for further information about the 2016 Investiture, and to download a Registration Form. A small selection of images from Columbus can now also be viewed in our Photo Gallery, and links to videos of the talks from the Sunday morning can be found on our Education Page.

Members' Area

The Members' Area is available for Registration and browsing. You will normally need to be a Member of the North Central Lieutenancy to access this area.
