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.
The American Association’s first 2018 Retreat is scheduled for the weekend of March 2 – 4, 2018 at the Bethany Retreat Center in Lutz, Florida. Bishop Frank Caggiano, ChC, from Bridgeport, CT, a familiar face to many of our members, will once again bless us as our Retreat Master.
Lutz, Florida, the site of the retreat, is about a forty-five minute drive from Tampa International Airport (depending on traffic).
The weekend will begin with check-in on Friday afternoon between 3PM and 4PM ET with the opening Mass at 4:45PM.
Retreat Theme: “Encountering the Lord: Let us walk with Jesus”
We will examine different ways we can deepen our relationship with the Lord.
