Newport/North Kingstown is the Epicenter of American Templarism. Only 25 minutes away from the Narragansett Stone is the Templar Tower (Newport Tower) which you can see during the same trip. Near the Tower, don’t miss the In Hoc Signo Vinces Rock that can be viewed in the water near Fort Adams, Newport, RI (only at low tide).
Do we know if Scott Wolter is right? No one will ever know but we just see it as it as good-hearted fun. To RSVP, please email: info@OSMTJ.net

Molay Templar Unity Memorial Service
Sunday, March 16th, 2014: You are invited to the 700th Anniversary Memorial of the martyrdom of arguably the greatest Templar Grand Master, Jacques de Molay. He became our Martyr and hero when he was burned at the stake for refusing to make a false confession of Templar heresy on March 18th, 1314. This “Templar Unity Memorial Service“ emphasizes “Unity,” because it seeks to bring the three major Templar Orders together to show our unity in paying our respects to our greatest Grand Master. In the spirit of de Moaly, let’s put our differences behind us for a day to showcase the true Templar ethic of universal brotherhood. Please RSVP to your Order’s Leader so we can update the restaurant, or to: info@TheKnightsTemplar.org Attire: Media may be present taking pictures so we ask all Templars to unify in wearing their white mantles (cloak) with red crosses on the left shoulder over warm semi-formal attire (sweaters and coats suggested beneath the mantles). For example you can buy your mantle here: http://www.dominionregalia.com/index.php?id=20&nProductID=121&nProductGroupsID=4&nProductcategoriesID=44
