Some of our Associates, with Sisters Avrill and Jean, and Retreat conductor, Father Ron Browning.

Associates of the Community are women and men, lay and ordained, who are active members of a Christian parish, have had some prior contact with us, and seek to deepen their life in Christ through a closer association with the life and ministry of the Sisters. 


Associates keep a simple Rule of Life which includes praying for the Community and, where possible, assisting in practical ways. There is a probationary period followed by a Service of Admission, usually held in the Community House Chapel.

The Community supports Associates through prayer and fellowship and a regular program of speakers, Quiet Days and an annual retreat, as well as regular newsletters. 

Priest Associates also have a Rule of Life which includes an undertaking  to pray regularly for the Community, to make the Community known and to encourage interest in the religious life.
