The basic structure of the Order from the lowest authority locally to the highest authority internationally is:​​

1. The Commandery

2. The Grand Priory

3. The Grand Magistry

At the national level, each Commandery shall be subject to the jurisdiction of a Grand Priory. All Grand Priories are subject to the jurisdiction of the Grand Magistry with the Grand Knight as its temporal head.

Within a Grand Priory the Grand Knight has the exclusive and obligatory right to appoint its Prior. The Prior of a Grand Priory acts not only as the personal representative of the Grand Knight within the respective nation in which the Order is established, but due to the honor of the office, is its most senior figure.​

The Prior’s chief responsibility is to ensure that all matters and activities of the Grand Priory are properly performed in full accordance with the Order’s Constitution. The Commanderies of the Order are headed and chaired by a Commandery Officer elected by the Orthodox members of the Commandery and approved by the Prior.
