==The Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre==
The Patriarch of Jerusalem leads the '''Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre'''. This "brotherhood" constitutes consists of all metropolitans, archbishops, bishops, archimandrites, priests, monks and deacons belonging to the patriarchate. The purpose of this group is to guide orthodox Orthodox Christians in the Holy Land and advocate the Orthodox faith. Within the brotherhood, there is another subgroup called the "guards.". The guards are a specific group of monks from the Holy [[Monastery of St. Constantine and Helen (Jerusalem)|Monastery of St. Constantine and Helen]]. These monks are given the specific role of guarding the '''Chapel of the Sepulchre''' (the Tomb tomb of Christ) and defending the faith. There will always be at least one guardian within the '''Chapel of the Angel'''. They ensure that respectable and appropriate conduct is shown by [[pilgrim]]s at the Tomb tomb of Christ. The order is considered a continuation on of the original "Significant" group, established well before St. Helen's visit in 326.
