Peace Through Understanding

The Fraternal Order of Knights of Pythias and its members are dedicated to the cause of universal peace. Pythians are pledged to the promotion of understanding among men of good will as the surest means of attaining Universal Peace.

We believe that men, meeting in a spirit of goodwill, in an honest effort of understanding, can live together on this earth in peace and harmony.

We seek those who agree with this belief, and have a belief in a personal Supreme Being, to join our ranks in an effort to reach "Peace Through Understanding".


The Pythian Story

History of the Order

The Order of Knights of Pythias is a great international fraternity which was founded in Washington, DC, February 19, 1864, by Justus H. Rathbone, and embraces more than two thousand subordinate lodges in the United States and Canada, with occasional lodges having been formed elsewhere. The primary object of fraternal organizations is to promote friendship among men and to relieve suffering. Each organization adopts some outstanding principle as its objective. The individuality of an order is determined by its ideal sentiment. The distinguishing principles of the Order of Knights of Pythias are "FRIENDSHIP, CHARITY and BENEVOLENCE".

What Pythians do?

 The members of the Fraternal Order Knights of Pythias are deeply involved in their communities throughout the United States and Canada.

Their social and charitable activities are directed towards enhancing the great principles of the Order - FRIENDSHIP, CHARITY, and BENEVOLENCE. These principles are adhered to very strongly through contributions of money, time, efforts and supplies to Pythians and non-Pythians alike. The eventual aim and goal is the betterment of mankind.

For several years the United Cerebral Palsy Association was the primary charity of the Pythian Order - both nationally and locally. Several hundreds of thousands of dollars were raised for the cause, and many Pythians still devote much time and energy on behalf of Cerebral Palsy.
