Who Are We?
The Associates are women and men, active members of the Church, animated by the desire to live their faith and witness to Christ in the concrete realities of their daily life. Their link with the Congregation helps them to realize this desire.
Centrality of the Eucharist
The Eucharist is central to the life of an Associate. In the celebration of the Eucharist and in Eucharistic Adoration, they are given the strength and the inspiration to live out their mission in the Church.
Like every Christian, an Associate is called to proclaim the Gospel. Inspired and nourished by the charism of Marie Therese de Soubiran, they try to do this within their own family life, in their local Church and community and in the work place.
In the context of their lives as lay people, they take to heart the apostolic orientations of the Congregation, with a particular concern for the needs of young people and those most deprived.
The Associates meet regularly as a group, when possible with a Sister of the Congregation who accompanies them.
According to each one’s call, they are invited to make a formal commitment which is renewed each year.
