Squires Manor

Ages 9–11

DeMolay Squires is an organization providing boys (9-11) an opportunity to be a part of, and support, DeMolay and through collaborative efforts, plan its own program of activities

About the DeMolay Squires Program

Established in 1995, Squires is a program for boys ages 9 to 11. It teaches important lessons about Justice, Truth, and Wisdom while participating in a variety of fun events and developing lasting friendships. A great starting point for any youth interested in becoming a DeMolay at 12 years old, or who is just looking for something to get involved in. Squires hold “professional” meetings, attend fun events, and interact with DeMolays. A Squire is part of a Manor, and members hold an office within their Manor. Each meeting and event has Advisors present who ensure safety, and work closely with the Squires. Active DeMolays give the Squires positive role models, and love interacting with their “little brothers”. Parents are welcome to attend all events, and contribute to the success of the manor.

About the Knighthood Program

The Order of Knighthood is a special group for older DeMolays (17-21) who have “been around the block”. It serves as an opportunity for accomplished DeMolays to work towards new goals, and gives the older members an occasion to interact amongst themselves.  Knighthood members are part of a Priory which has its own officers and events.

 

The official name of the Order is The Chivalric Knights of the Holy Order of the Fellow Soldiers of Jacques DeMolay. Knighthood is not an honorary degree or award, but a working body whose purpose is to improve its members, and to serve the Order of DeMolay. It is standout from DeMolay and Squires in its attire, and if available, swords are worn on the hip and are used during their proceedings.

The Order of Knighthood made its debut in 1946.

The main functions of a Priory are to:

  1. Assist the Order of DeMolay and its Chapters.
  2. Maintain the active interest of older DeMolays.
  3. Provide an interesting program for the Priory members.
  4. Provide a proper example for all DeMolays.
 

Adult Support

Ages 21+

The adults that support and enable DeMolay at every level, 
are just as important as the young men involved.

How can adults support the program?

DeMolay has a large cast of dedicated Advisors and volunteers who enjoy supporting the activities and programs of DeMolay as much as the youth enjoy participating in them. Whatever the level of commitment, adults supporting DeMolay make a significant impact in the lives of the youth they interact with, and that support keeps DeMolay strong for generation after generation.
