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

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

Fecund solidarity apostolate initiatives have blossomed as well. Young people and adults serve the poor and needy in the urban areas of Denver and in Latin America through mission trips to rural and remote areas as well as urban centers. These trips involve medical missions where medical professionals care for the sick and needy in areas where resources are scarce.

Thanks to the natural beauty of the Colorado rocky mountains, apostolic initiatives have been created to promote the reconciliation between people and creation through hiking, camping, retreats and conferences. These initiatives have also extended beyond the United States with pilgrimages to some of the most importante sanctuaries around the world joined with solidarity missions to help those in need.
