The Sodalitium in the U.S.

The Sodalits founded their first community in the U.S. in 2003. They were invited by the former Archbishop of Denver, and current Archbishop of Philadelphia, Charles Chaput to a retreat center outside the city in the Rocky Mountains called Camp St. Malo. In October of 2010, Archbishop Chaput entrusted Holy Name parish to the Sodalitium which is where the community currently resides.

Over the years, several of the Christian Life Movement’s initiatives have grown with support from Marian, Emmaus, and Bethany groups.

“Christ in the City” is one of the most important of these initiatives. It is a solidarity project that seeks to bring social and spiritual aid to the homeless in Denver, while offering an extensive intellectual and spiritual formation to the university students who volunteer.

The Sodalitium also organizes mission trips to South America where it promotes Christian solidarity with the poor in both rural and urban areas. These trips include medical missions where medical professionals care for the sick and needy in areas where resources are scarce.

The Sodalits’ apostolic work in the U.S. also includes serving in “Creatio,” an independent organization that promotes the reconciliation between people and creation through conferences and publications on environmental issues, mission trips, retreats, and adventure sports which help people find themselves with God and promote ecological and human development.
