Welcome to the website of the North Central Lieutenancy!

   THE ORDER & THE CHURCH IN THE HOLY LAND

The Grand Magisterium of the Order

The Order's website has recently been redesigned and updated, and its content, which is available in multiple languages, will default to English for browsers located in the United States. More material should be added as the site is developed further.

The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem

This site is continuously updated and has been greatly enhanced. The text mostly defaults to English, but much of the site can also be viewed in French, Italian, and Arabic, and a few parts still only in French. It includes a great deal of information about the work of the Church in the Holy Land and related matters, and is well worth a visit.

Pope Francis in the Holy Land 2014

Pope Francis made an official visit to the Holy Land on May 24-26, 2014. The heads of the Catholic Churches in Amman, Bethlehem and Jerusalem welcomed him and the Pope expressed confidence that this visit would not only be an international event, but also a message of love and brotherhood to all inhabitants of the countries he visited.

THE HOLY SEE

English Language Vatican Home Page

Pope Francis Index Page

Links to copies of the current Holy Father's exhortations, speeches, sermons, and other significant documents. Almost all of these are available here in English.

Papal Archives

Links to copies of previous pontiffs' exhortations, speeches, sermons, and other significant documents. These online archives are most complete for recent pontiffs, but some material is available from as far back as the pontificate of Pius XI. Much of the earlier material is only available in Latin and/or Italian, but English versions of most of the material from the pontificates of John Paul I and John Paul II (and of some from that of Paul VI) are available here.

THE HOLY LAND

This opens a page on our holysepulchre.net site which contains links to many additional sources of videos and other information about the Holy land and the people who live there.
