The American Association Founded in 1927 as the first association of the Order of Malta in the Americas, the association is headquartered in New York City with over 2,000 knights, dames and volunteers in 16 states working with the poor, sick and incarcerated and giving witness to the Catholic faith.
Spirituality Knights and Dames join the Order of Malta to pursue their spiritual growth over a path laid out by Blessed Gerard more than nine hundred years ago, seeking to nurture and witness the Faith and assist the sick and the poor.
Spirituality in Action Members are involved in hands-on work involving over one hundred organizations and ministries. Food banks, hospitals, pregnancy support centers, homeless shelters and mentoring at risk children are just some of the activities in which members engage.
Partnering with Cor Unum, a meal center in Lawrence, MA, members of the Order help prepare and serve meals to underfed women, men, and children in one of the poorest communities in the Commonwealth. Guests are served on china plates at comfortable round tables in a freshly decorated room. By greeting each guest with dignity, respect, and love, we are feeding the bodies and souls of the hungry.
We serve every month and if you would like to participate please contact Ed Delaney at firstname.lastname@example.org or Evie Caron at email@example.com.
Throughout history, the Order of Malta has been a voice for the disenfranchised. Today, through our prison ministry, we continue this tradition by visiting and praying for our incarcerated brothers and sisters.
