The Order of St. Thomas of Acre is an international ecumenical society concerned with fostering of the values of traditional chivalry.

The Order was re-established on 8th February 2005. The current order is dedicated to both St.Thomas the Apostle and St. Thomas of Canterbury. It now operates under an offical ecclesiastical blessing. The habit adopted is that of the original order - a white mantle bearing a red cross with a scallop shell. The badge of the order is a red cross patonce, with an escallop centrally placed, surmounted by a crown to signify the independence of the new order, placed on a white field.

We claim no direct links with the original Crusader order or any revival. Rather the name is chosen to honour those original knights who served in the Holy Land in that little known but uniquely English Hospitaller and Military Order.
