The Priory of St. Matthew holds a Convent and Investiture twice a year, one in the spring and one in the Fall. During this time, Knights and Dames, in solemnity and ceremony, reflect on their obligations to God and humanity, the history of the Knights Templar and renew vows of fidelity to the Order of which we belong. In addition, Postulants receive the accolade and are inducted into the Order upon agreement of standing Dames and Knights. These are not secret proceedings; The public is always welcome to see what it is we do.
The Priory's Executive Committee decide which cities will host each event. Hotels and Church venues are secured for this formal affair. Previous venues have been in Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Bastrop, Fort Worth and Corpus Christi.
This fall, on October 2-4 2020, the Priory will hosting a Convent at a retreat location in the Texas hill country. There will be no promotions or investitures during this time. Rather, it will be a time of reflection on our roles as Templars in our lives, in our country, and abroad ... as well as a period to spend time together in a less formal setting.
