Franciscan Guardians of the Holy Sepulcher

A band of six or seven Fathers and as many Brothers chosen every three months from the community of Saint Saviour to keep watch over the Holy Sepulcher and the sanctuaries of the basilica, to which they conduct a daily pilgrimage. The rest of the Saint Saviour community, numbering about 25 Fathers and 55 Brothers, are engaged in various activities of the convent which comprise, besides the church of Saint Saviour (the Latin parish church of Jerusalem), an orphanage, a parish school for boys, a printing office, carpenters' and ironmongers' shop, a mill, and the largest library in Palestine.
