There are over 935 Knights and Dames and nearly 60 Federal Association Chaplains in 33 states, the District of Columbia and 3 foreign countries. Most Federal Association Members live in one of the 25 “Hospitaller Regions” nationwide. As membership grew, the Federal Association created regions to facilitate ongoing spiritual and volunteer activities for members. Each region is coordinated by a Regional Hospitaller who is responsible for the organization of membership-related events, Masses, and activities.
