Knights Templar of the world,
Grand Priory of the Knights Templar of Sweden, Tempelherreorden, once again invite you and your partner to share some time with us in connection to our annual Grand Chapter with Investiture of new Knights – this year in the historical Cistercienser monastery of Varnhem and in the old Swedish city of Skara.
All Scandinavian Knights of the Great Grand Priory of Scandinavia and specially invited Knights from other Grand Priories are more than welcome to participate in this Swedish event.
During both Saturday and Sunday we will arrange some culture/historic guided visits in and around Skara – in the footsteps of the fictive Knights Templar Arn de Gothia (from the books of Swedish author Jan Guillou).
Program and costs on the following pages. We have made preliminary reservations of single and double rooms at Skara Statt (owned by our Brother Bengt Roser, KTJ). You make your permanent booking directly to the hotel (see contact details below), with reference to OSMTH.
Register yourself, and partner, as soon as possible, but not later than 1 September. Use the form on the following page. Send it to my Chancellor, Jonas F Montgomery, KGOTJ. Also contact him IF you need help or have any questions.
Heartly welcome to a week-end of interesting meetings and activities in the name of our Order! Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed nomini Tuo da gloriam
