Appendent Organizations | Legion of Honor
The Legion's mission is to consecrate the hearts and minds of its members to an unfaltering belief of God, support of the public schools, and defense of the rights of all.
A DeMolay legionnaire can be of great assistance to the Order. His leadership is needed to guide the young men of today who are learning those teachings that have helped guide his life. One man alone may falter, but, united, legionnaires can expand and extend their abilities, interests and leadership, building a foundation of service and accepting the responsibilities and tradition.
Legionnaires throughout DeMolay have been united in Preceptories, carrying out their responsibilities by extending their leadership to DeMolay. All members of the Preceptory must be legionnaires, either active or honorary. Each legionnaire should be a participating member, have observed last March 18 and mailed his required observance report to the Service and Leadership Center.
The Preceptory may elect the following officers:
The function of the Preceptory is to assist the Executive Officer in conferring the Legion of Honor Degree on those elected by DeMolay International's Supreme Council and to help the Executive Officer in any other manner he might desire.
A Preceptory may develop a program and dinner for the annual observance on March 18, and carry out some of the following activities to aid DeMolay, provided clearance first has been obtained from the Executive Officer.
A Preceptory may be formed in the following manner:
A Preceptory should establish a meeting schedule which includes the annual observance on March 18. The pride and honor of being a legionnaire can best be shown in service to the Order.
Sample Preceptory bylaws can be found in the appendix of DeMolay International's Bylaws, Rules and Regulations.
