South Bend, Indiana
A more recent innovation is the contact the Society of Christian Doctrine – Preca Community has made in South Bend, Indiana in the United States. South Bend is home to the 150-year-old University of Notre Dame. Driven by a friend of the SDC, Ruth Lasseter and in conjunction with SDC Leaders, connections have been made with reciprocal visits to Malta and South Bend in order to assess how this initiative can proceed.
While there are currently no Members in South Bend, Associates and Friends of the SDC are forming to study the life of St George Preca and to share in the mission of the SDC through gatherings and prayer services.
