Order of Malta


If the work we do is something you believe would nurture your spirituality and your call to serve others, we would welcome speaking with you about membership. Here are the steps involved in becoming a member:

  • Sponsorship. Your sponsor may be someone you know who is in the Order, or you may contact our membership committee to find out how to obtain a sponsor.
  • The Membership Committee. A member of the committee will meet with you to discuss what it means to be a member.
  • Year of Formation. Each candidate undergoes a formation process during the course of the year. During this time candidates learn about the Order of Malta, including its spirituality, works, rules, history and traditions. They also become involved in hands-on ministries and may participate in pilgrimages, retreats and other activities.
  • Investiture. New Knights and Dames are invested into the Order in the fall at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City.
