Associates are women and men who share the vision and the goals of the Sisters of the Cross and Passion and who desire to enter into a non-vowed relationship with the community. Sisters and Associates endeavor to bring new life to the Passionist charism through association in prayer, ministry and community friendship. Thus, it is hoped, the charism of the Passion will be extended and enhanced by the development of a deeply rich spiritual life.
Associate membership is open to women and men who desire a personal relationship with the Lord within the context of the Passionist spirit. They share in and draw support from the prayer life of the Sisters. Where possible, they participate in the varied ministries of the community. Associates continue to live their own life-styles, contributing time and talents as their giftedness, calling and circumstances allow. There are no financial obligations.
Those who wish to become Associates commit themselves to participant in an orientation program, after which, having received formal acceptance as Associates by the Leadership Team, they may be invited to various activities of the community.
