An associate is a Christian woman or man, married or single, young or old, who resonates with the Servants of Mary/Servite charism of compassion.
An associate has a desire to connect with the community, to deepen his or her own expression of compassionate presence and invests in personal spiritual growth.
Our Associates are intricately involved in the life of the Servants of Mary. Those interesting in discerning becoming an associate are offered a formation/enrichment process that meets approximately once a month over a year or year and a half period. Our associates learn the history of the Congregation, what is mission and charism of the Servants of Mary. There are faith sharing gatherings were different types of prayer and spirituality are learned and experienced.
After discernment, one may continue the journey as an associate through a covenant ceremony, meeting with sisters and associates in ministry and on-going spiritual enrichment.
