We welcome you with great pleasure to the website of the Noble Order of Knights and Ladies of Marshall.
The Noble Order of Knights and Ladies of Marshall is a Catholic friendly society founded in 1926 with two primary objectives. First, to bring Catholic men and women together for effective lay apostolate and Catholic action and second, to provide a friendly social forum for Catholics who might otherwise be attracted to non-Catholic lodges.
The Noble Order was named after Sir. James Marshall an English Judge of the then Gold Coast whose relentless efforts led to the re-founding of the Catholic Church in the country in 1880 after nearly 250 years of the breakdown of the first attempt at establishing it.
Presently, the Noble Order has an approximate membership of about 6,000 literate practicing Catholic ladies and gentlemen spread through 107 Councils and 102 Courts in Ghana, Togo, Benin, Liberia and London. The Order also has Junior Order wings attached to the adult Councils and Courts.
This site will inform you further about the background, structures, organization and programmes of the Order based on its motto: Unity, Charity, Fraternity and Service. In this respect, it will also offer you an opportunity to understand and appreciate better, what the Noble Order of Knights and Ladies of Marshall stand for.
We wish you happy browsing and pray that what you learn at this site will convince you to join the Noble Order of Knights and Ladies of Marshall to serve God and our nations in the spirit of our motto.
