On February 27, 2017, a meeting was held at Setermoen in Troms. The purpose of the meeting was to gather the Knights of Priorat Norway who lived in Northern Norway to see if there was a willingness to establish a commando in Northern Norway. The will was there and the execution was great!
After Great Priorat Scandinavia's annual knight's day in 2017, which was held in Lund in the south - Sweden, a foundation meeting was held.
The working group had submitted proposals for the name Kommanderi Hålogaland, the geographical area of the Commandery extends over Sør-Hålogaland Diocese and the entire Nord-Hålogaland Diocese.
