Order of Malta

Welcome to the Northeast Florida, Order of Malta

The area officers of the Northeast Florida, Order of Malta, welcome you. This is one of 30 Area groups of the Order of Malta, American Association USA, created in 1927.

The Order of Malta is a lay religious order of the Roman Catholic Church. Founded over 1,000 years ago, it is a Hospitaller order and the oldest order of knighthood in the world. The purpose of the Order is to promote the spiritual well-being of its members who dedicate themselves to help the sick and the poor. Knights and Dames of the Order are also charged with the responsibility to defend the Faith.

We are committed in today’s world to be true to the Order’s mission. Our members volunteer to care for the sick and the poor in their communities. We also support charitable projects in other areas of the United States, such as the rebuilding of hurricane-destroyed homes on the Gulf Coast. We are dedicated to the Order’s annual international pilgrimage to Lourdes, and to our ministry interests in Haiti and Honduras. In witness to the Catholic faith, we participate in a variety of special Masses, retreats and seminars throughout the year.


Current members can use this site to view upcoming events, learn about our Spirituality in Action, and find current needs for volunteers.
