St John promotes physical, mental and spiritual health and well-being. That is the vocation we share and we will build an enduring community in which all its members can find purpose and enjoyment. It is built on our motto and our mission “Pro Fide (for the faith), Pro Utilitate Hominum (in the service of humanity)” and embodies the Christian principles of our founders.
Pro Fide – Pro Utilitate Hominum
For the Faith and in the Service of Humanity
St John is an international family of charities whose mission is to lead globally in First Aid and medical responses to community healthcare needs.
Together to enhance the reach and effectiveness of St John globally through focus on the two aspects of its Motto.
To encourage all that makes for the spiritual and moral strengthening of humanity;
To encourage and promote all the work of humanity and charity for the relief of persons in sickness, distress, suffering or danger without distinction of race, class or religion; and
To render aid to the sick, wounded, disabled or suffering.
Our first four values are based upon our view of human need, in which we promote physical, mental and spiritual health and well-being, guided and inspired by the Christian principles of our founders: Respect, Unselfishness, Excellence, Openness and transparency
Our next four values are concerned with how we behave within St John, building an enduring community with a shared vocation based on timeless principles of virtue and honour: Devotion, Togetherness, Diversity and inclusiveness, Faithfulness
