How do you become an associate?
• You receive an invitation from one of the sisters or express a desire to look into the possibility of being an associate. • You experience a time of discernment with the sisters and associates. This is a time to share stories, interests and the chance to learn about one another.
• You go through a period of formation, learning about the history of the Sisters of St. Mary, our spirit, our prayer and spirituality, and ways of connecting with us. • When you and the sisters have discerned that you feel ready to make a commitment, you may ask to become an associate. You then make your commitment for one year at a time. Being an associate is a beautiful way to live a life of purpose and connection!
