Sodalitium Christianae Vitae in the United States of America

Sodalitium Christianae Vitae - English / Sodalitium Christianae Vitae in the United States of America

Our brothers with Bishop Samuel Aquila, Archbishop of Denver at Holy Name Parish

The presence of Sodalitium in the United States began in 2003. In that year, at the invitation of Bishop Charles Chaput, then Archbishop of Denver, the first Sodalite community was started at Camp St. Malo, a retreat center on the outskirts of the city. In October 2010, Archbishop Chaput entrusted the Holy Name parish to the Sodalitium , where the community is currently located.

In 2014, the then Archbishop of Philadelphia, Bishop Charles Chaput, invited the Sodalitium to found a community that would be entrusted with the pastoral leadership of St. Agatha & St. James Parish and the Newman Center for the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University in West Philadelphia.

Over the years the presence of the Christian Life Movement (CLM) has been consolidated and the apostolic initiatives involve groups from Emmaus, Bethany and Marian Groups.

A fruitful solidarity apostolate has also been developed. Youth and adults serve those most in need both in the city of Denver and through mission trips to Latin America, both to remote rural areas and urban centers. These trips include medical missions, where medical professionals dedicate a week to care for the sick and needy in low-resource regions.

Thanks to the beauty of nature in the mountains of Colorado, apostolate initiatives have emerged that seek reconciliation with creation through hikes, camps, retreats and conferences. These initiatives have also spread beyond the United States, with pilgrimages to important sanctuaries in the world combined with solidarity missions to help those most in need.
