How Do I Become an Associate?
Women and men enter a candidacy process in which they experience the spirit of the congregation through relationships with sisters, associates and other candidates and by learning the history, spirituality and ministry of the community. Associates emerge from the process more conscious of how to live in “loving unity” with self, with others, with creation and with the dear neighbor.
Support and challenge of a faith community
Opportunities for personal growth
Personal relationships with sisters and associates
Participation in retreats, days of prayer, workshops and celebrations
Monthly gatherings in a small community of sisters and associates
Invitations to participate in local and national activities
Opportunities to serve the province in ministries and on committees
You may wish to explore association if…
• You are seeking to engage in a deeper, more intentional spiritual journey with others who will support and challenge you.
• You are looking for a faith community with whom to pray, minister and celebrate God’s presence in life.
• You desire to further social justice, particularly on behalf of the economically poor and unjustly deprived.
• You realize that life has a deeper meaning when lived in the context of reflection, shared experience and meaningful service to all of God’s people.
