The Order was for charitable and chivalric purposes. In 1821 Perrot described the mission of The Equestrian, Secular and Chapterial Order of Saint Joachim as follows: "The Knights solemnly vow to worship the Supreme Being, show tolerance towards all religions, loyalty towards their princes, support the needs of their military, the poor, widows and orphans."
In addition to its charitable work, the Commandery promotes fraternity through the following:
An investiture honoring new members, promotions, and celebrating awards held every other September
Meet and greet events for regional members
A social media presence where members can interact
