Serving Pilgrims for Over 900 years.
The U.S. Associations of the Order of Malta continue our long tradition of serving pilgrims through the operation of the Hospitality and First Aid Center at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help.
In 2010, the Bishop of Green Bay, the Most Rev. David L. Ricken approved Adele Brise’s 1859 Marian Apparitions after a lengthy study of eyewitness testimony and records.
The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is the first and only approved Marian apparition site in the United States.
The Order of Malta’s relationship with the Shrine started when several members of the Federal Association visited in 2013. Since then, the three US Associations have jointly gathered on an annual four-day pilgrimage at the Shrine in the first week of August. Participation in the pilgrimage is coordinated through each Association’s office.
The Order of Malta’s support of the Shrine led to the establishment in 2019 of a Hospitality and First Aid Center.
