About the Order The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and Malta is one of the oldest institutions of Western and Christian civilization. The 13,500 Knights and Dames remain true to its inspiring principles – nurturing, witnessing and protecting the faith and serving the poor and the sick.
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.
Families are very welcome to participate in our dinner at Rudy’s, our service times at Holy Family Manor, and our Lenten and Advent Evenings of Recollection. All family members are not only welcome, but highly encouraged to attend Bishop Schlert’s Mass on June 24th.
More information will be posted at a later date for the December 2019 Advent Evening of Reflection (December 8th or 15th).
Through the kindness and generosity of our Chaplain, Msgr. Klinger, the parish of Assumption BVM in Colesville will host the Mass for the Feast Day of St. John the Baptist, celebrated by Bishop Schlert, at 6:00 PM on Monday, June 24.
Msgr Klinger has offered the use of the parish facilities for dinner following the Mass and the meal will be prepared by members of his parish. The dinner will immediately follow the Mass. All local members and their families are not only invited but strongly encouraged to attend.
If you know of anyone who may be interested in joining the American Association as a Knight, Dame, or Auxiliary member, we encourage you to invite them.
