The Priory of the Holy Grail sponsors nursing students in the Holy Land through our Marcy Pollmann  Nursing Scholarship Fund, in honor of our departed Dame.  We believe that placing medical providers  in communities where conflict is so severe is a great way to propose the love and mercy which God desires. Through this scholarship programs we are helping to create strong Christian members of the near Eastern community, a place where evil always seems to winning, who can stand with strength of love and mercy over hatred and violence.

SMOTJ also actively supports the Fisher Houses assistance to families of wounded combat veterans. Members have provided hours of labor to Habitat for Humanity projects across the country, and support international relief efforts through donations and personal involvement of its medical professionals in projects for Doctors Without Borders.

Significant donations have been provided to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita relief efforts by the Salvation Army and the Red Cross. And, many members have offered space in their homes to those left homeless by these disasters.
