Our Charter

Our Charter

Jesus gathered his Learning Knights to him and said:

By this shall all men know you are my Learning Knights, by the love you have one to the other.

By love serve.

It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you.

Whosoever loses his life for my sake shall find it.

The works that I do you shall do also. I sent you to go and bear fruit.

You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses for me.

As my Father has sent me, even so send I you. Receive ye Holy Spirit.
