For several years now the Associates have been journeying with us, living in their own way certain aspects of our charism. We welcome them and recognize with joy that we are all part of the same spiritual family: that of Marie Therese de Soubiran
We wish to share more with them and support each other mutually. Our gatherings, our communities are places of renewal for all of us.
Ignatian spirituality and especially the Spiritual Exercises which invigorate our apostolic religious life are for them as for us the most important means of formation and growth
