Order of Malta

Illinois Spirituality in Action

In our effort to support the Order’s mission to care for the sick and the poor in their communities, our area has partnered with a number of organizations including:

House of the Good Shepherd

House of the Good Shepherd specializes in returning dignity and function to people whose lives are limited by homelessness, poverty, food insecurity, lack of education, unhealthy living conditions and especially the debilitating trauma and isolation of domestic violence.

L’Arche Chicago

Knights and Dames helped maintain the home of and serve quarterly suppers to the residents of L’Arche Chicago. L’Arche is an International Federation dedicated to the creation and growth of homes, programs, and support networks for people who have intellectual disabilities.

Little Sisters of the Poor

The Little Sisters of the Poor dedicate their lives to serving the elderly poor. Illinois Area Knights and Dames have been honored to support the Little Sisters of the Poor – St. Mary’s Home in Chicago through various programs including Mass and Anointing of the Sick in observance of the World Day of the Sick and Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes; Mass and Rosary Procession in commemoration of the Assumption; and an annual summer barbecue for residents.
