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.
February 10, 2018: Knights Bill Haney and Gerry Scanlon and Deacon Jack Shea helped with the morning prep for the Westchester Area's February lunch at P.O.T.S.
Members also brought canned food for their food bank where locals in need can get a months supply of food.
Each month, our Area members visit P.O.T.S. (Part of the Solution), located in the Fordham section of the Bronx, to serve the needy by providing lunch service, canned food, clothing, personal hygiene products, counseling and legal advice.
