SMOCK [Pronunciation] is an Order and Diocese of special, medical, and sacred ministry. As an ecumenical Order, membership of the Sacred Medical Order is by invitation to both men and women who are of good character and standing in their community, want to learn about our sacred medicines, and who wish to help suffering mankind.

SMOKH has many hundreds of members from diverse fields. Now in its eleventh year of service, with its focus is on education and medical preparedness. It is established and operates on Nevis Island maintaining a historical and traditional link with the Knights of St. John of St. Christopher/Nevis (c. 1651). The Knights of Hope maintain a Hospitaller/Crusader Museum and Medical Monastic Library, as well as a service Chapel. It supports the St. Thomas Anglican Church, the oldest on Nevis built in 1643.


WE PROVIDE healthcare practitioners a legal and spiritual path to offer Biblical health and wellness services to their clients – the practice we refer to as Ecclesiastic (Monastic) Medicine, a tradition dating back to the beginning of the Christian era. The very word 'hospital', as a shelter for the needy, is clearly of Christian origin. Nursing and monastic medicine were the very origins of nature cure (aka 'naturopathy') as our anthology of medical history points out.

Natural medicine is Abrahamic and clearly begins and ends with natural laws. 'In God we Trust,' is the motto of common law understanding. Our Forefathers chose the system of Common Law based on the Law of Moses (Ten Commandments) as the Law of the Land. This led to 'sphere sovereignty', separation of 'church' and 'state.'

For services by skilled healthcare practitioners of faith and morals, the clear legal path for your practice is the Church. SMOKH offers the sound and legitimate steps to Healer's Ordination with subsequent commission (license) to faith-based practice.
