For the covenant item, see Spears of the Church (item).

The Spears of the Church is a covenant in Dark Souls III. It was introduced in The Ringed City DLC.

In-Game Description

The Spears of the Church watch over the Princess' slumber, and when the church is compromised by a trespasser, the Judicator summons them as loyal spirits to eliminate the threat.
Loyal spirits summoned as Spears of the Church are granted a blessing of protection.[1]


The player must have defeated Darkeater Midir and acquired the Spears of the Church covenant item.

How to joinEdit

The player must simply equip the Spears of the Church covenant item.


While a Spear of the Church, the player can be automatically summoned to another player's world to be a boss. While summoned as a boss, the player will be able to use the Ritual Spear Fragment and the Divine Spear Fragment.

Unlike other covenants, a Spear of the Church may be summoned in to combat a lone player who is not a Host of Embers, making this covenant the only one with such a mechanic in Dark Souls III.
