OSJ (Worldwide)

OSJ (Worldwide) Administration:

National directors head OSJ communities (jurisdictions) in other countries and they are elected or appointed according to local need and tradition.

These OSJ jurisdictions are largely self-governing within OSJ as a family, and each is quite different.  Currently OSJ operates in 11 countries under 6 jurisdictions.

Countries served by OSJ members include England, Wales, Italy, Switzerland, USA, India, Pakistan, Philippines, Kenya, Uganda, Burundi.

OSJ (Worldwide) - Supporting Others:

Ministry in the community is our primary role.  We like to get involved and make things happen.

The Order of St James is a self-supporting voluntary organization and, although we have very limited financial resources and have huge demands made on us, we try to do our bit if funds become available. 

We are not a registered charity, nor wish to take on that role, but any donations we do receive are immediately redirected straight to the point of need, and are fully used to support or kickstart projects in the communities we serve. 

Projects supported by OSJ (Worldwide) provinces include:

The Kitale orphanage, OSJ Kenya,

The Open Door Project, OSJ India,

The Schools Feeding Programme, OSJ Philippines,

The setting up of a free online education University based in the US by OSJ Pakistan.

A church building programme in Pakistan.
