Orders & Societies of The Church of St Mary & St John
Order of St Mary Magdalene - (OMM)
Mary Magdalene was of the district of Magdala, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, where stood her families castle, called Magdalon; she was the sister of Lazarus and Martha, and they were the children of parents reputed noble, or, as some say, royal descendants of the House of David. On the death of their father, Syrus, they inherited vast riches and possessions in land, which were equally divided between them.
Mary Magdalene was the wife of Jesus and they had children together, a fact which was omitted by later revisionist editors of the Gospels.
Mary Magdalene & Jesus took the 'Holy Grail' and the Mystery School teachings to the South of France.
The Order of St Mary Magdalene's origins go back to the first century and Mary Magdalene as its founder. It has continued since then secretly and the lineages passed down through the females of the Holy Grail Bloodline. This cannot however be verified by historians or scholars, for the original records and documents, as well as most of the keepers of the knowledge, remain hidden and secretive. The Divine Feminine Principle has survived throughout the centuries because it has been kept secret and hidden, without need for permission or recognition from the patriarchy.
This Order is open to Priestesses only.
Order of St John The Baptist - (OJB)
John the Baptist was an enigmatic person and a witness to the Light. He was characterized as an Initiate of the Christ, a demigod, as Samael described him. Yet, his role in the Bible is downplayed somewhat as seen here in the Gospel of Matthew (11:11): Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
John The Baptist set up a secret hidden (occult) church to pass the true teachings of Mary Magdalene and Jesus down through the generations of the Spiritual Royalty. In the hope that one day the rest of the population would be ready for the truth.
The Order of St John The Baptist has its origins directly from St John The Baptist, who passed the secret teachings of the Divine Feminine and the Holy Grail down through the male children of Mary & Jesus.
This Order is open to Priests only.
Order of St Thecla - (OThc)
According to the Acts of Paul and Thecla, Thecla (St. Taqla) was a young noble virgin who listened to Paul's "discourse on virginity" and became Paul's follower. Thecla's mother, and her fiancé Thamyris, became concerned that Thecla would follow Paul's demand "that one must fear only one God and live in chastity", and punished both Paul and Thecla. She was miraculously saved from being burned at the stake by the onset of a storm, and travelled with Paul to Pisidian Antioch. There a nobleman named Alexander desired Thecla and attempted to take her by force. Thecla fought him off, assaulting him in the process, and was put on trial for assaulting a nobleman. She was sentenced to be eaten by wild beasts, but was again saved by a series of miracles when the female beasts protected her against her male aggressors. No other early account of Thecla exists.
This Order is open to those who are Sub-Deacon or above, who have undertaken humanitarian work or have worked helping animals.
Order of St Joseph of Arimathea - (OJA)
We learn about Joseph of Arimathea in Sacred Scripture. Arimathea was his place of birth, which was most likely the same city also known as Ramatha, birthplace of the prophet Samuel.
Joseph of Arimathea was Jesus' Uncle, and many believe he brought the 'Holy Grail' to Glastonbury UK.
