What order is that?

Knights of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre

Dames of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre
1. Order of the Image of Our lady of Czestochowa. It was founded at the Shrine in March 1991. In October 1998, Blessed John Paul II, signed the Statutes and accepted the position as protector of the order

2. Brotherhood of the Holy Cross (Bractwo Świętego Krzyża)

3. The Order of Saint Stanislaus


4. The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem
5. Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta

Hmm, apparently I am only familiar with the Order of the Holy Sepulchre.
Does anyone recognize the other orders?

Update: We have the first ideas. Anyone know the other orders?

The Fourth one with Cross Crosslet's is a Brotherhood, not an Order. It's the Brotherhood of the Holy Cross, founded in 1928. It's statutes were approved by the Prince and Metropolitan Archbishop of Cracow, Adam Stefan Cardinal Sapieha.

The last one is a member of the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta (Sovereign Military Order of Malta) with the rank of Knight of Magistral Grace.

As for the others, I would love to know as well!

Good Luck and I always look forward to your posts!

Number 3 is the "Order" of St. Stanislaus and Number 4 is the "Order" of St. Lazarus.

The last one is a knight of Magistral Grace in obedience as he is wearing a scapular over his church mantle.
