To all members and comrades of the Lazarus Union


Our new  statutes  § 18 a (2014) contains in amongst others:

„… the CSLI commits itself to neutrality towards all groups of the Order Saint Lazarus and will refrain from any partisanship….”

This passage expulses definitely any affiliation to a specific Lazarus Group or any Order of St. Lazarus. Indeed it makes it necessary, to check all alliances, if they commit a breach of this self-declared neutrality.

For this reason, the Lazarus Union converts the current affiliation to the Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem of the United Grand Priories in a cooperative friendship with immediate effect. Therefore, the Lazarus Union is with immediate effect not affiliated as member or sister organization with any Lazarus Groups or Orders of St. Lazarusand as UN-NGO registered organization in “Special Consultative Status with the United Nations (ECOSOC)” independent.

So, the Lazarus Union is neutral towards all “Lazarus groups” or “Orders of Saint Lazarus” and is equally close or distant to all of them (depending on your point of view). Any other representation or description, links or other „usurpation” are therefore undesirable, obsolete, inaccurate and counterproductive for our self-declared neutrality.

The LAZARUS UNION has roots dating back to 1973 and developed (with a few detours) into today‘s form in 2010. With currently more than 17.500 members in more than 78 countries on all continents the LAZARUS UNION is at the moment the largest of all “Lazarus-Formations“ worldwide.

The LAZARUS UNION is also with the United Nations as an NGO (Non Governmental Organization) in “Special Consultant and Observer Status” with the United Nations (ECOSOC).

According to its possibilities the LAZARUS UNION is a world-wide operating charity organisation supporting all who are in need of help, friendship, comfort, or care.

The LAZARUS UNION is open for all people who are able to identify themselves with the mission statement of the LAZARUS UNION and does NEVER ask for the denomination of its members.

The LAZARUS UNION considers and respects this right of freedom of religion as the sole and personal moral issue of every singe member. After all, most religions of the world are represented in the LAZARUS UNION.

The LAZARUS UNION vigorously resists any and all “assimilation“ attempts from certain religions and their representatives and stresses the full neutrality of the LAZARUS UNION against all religious communities.

The LAZARUS UNION never puts any form of pressure on its members and leaves participation in religious activities solely in the conscience of the single member.

The LAZARUS UNION is therefore NEITHER a religious NOR a secular order and as such neither indebted to ANY particular religious group or organization nor does it allow itself to be taken in by any religious group.

This self-portrayal is valid for the complete LAZARUS UNION as well as for the LAZARUS UNION Knighthood of Honour as a knightly association!

Dear homepage visitor!

Dear comrades and supporters!


In January 2012 we presented our new homepage on the web and so created an excellent and efficient source of information (at least we think it is) for more than 17.000 members (actual July 2014), friends, and sympathisers worldwide. More than 600.000 hits in 2012 and more than 700.000 in the year 2013 bear testimony to this.

Besides general information on the LAZARUS UNION (goals, organisation, uniforms, awards, shop…) we strive to provide quick information on actual and planned events.

Since January 2012 all articles and information pages are available in German and English (the official communication language of the LAZARUS UNION). Older articles and reports are (unfortunately) still available in German only.

We would very much appreciate your suggestions and comments as only this can prevent us from becoming potentially routine-blinded. As it has due to the sheer size and structure of the full-size LAZARUS UNION become impossible to interact with all members, commanders, and partner groups always directly we kindly ask you to direct any questions or requests only to


and we reassure you that every e-mail will be forwarded to the responsible contact and in general will also be answered respectively the sender will be contacted within 48 hours. We all in the LAZARUS UNION do (unpaid) voluntary work and as such have only a limited amount of time available to work on these voluntary tasks. In 2012 we received 28.376 e-mails and wrote 17.597 answers. In 2013 we received 30.189 e-mails and wrote 19.871 answers!

We hope that our website gives you pleasure in 2014 and that yopu enjoy your visit!
