Associate membership is a calling of women and men to a non-vowed participation in the mission of the Ursuline Sisters, which is the mission of Jesus. It is a covenanted relationship based on the sharing of Ursuline ideals, goals, and charism. The Sisters and Associates are mutually enriched through the sharing of gifts, spiritual support, and strength for mission within the Church.
Through the example and intercession of St. Angela and Fr. John Lambertz, Sisters and Associates are a source of encouragement and inspiration to each other while being faithful to the lifestyle to which each has been called. The Associate members, being an integral part of the Province, are welcome at Province functions, including chapter sessions.
The Associate Membership Team is responsible for the preparation of prayer gatherings and the formation of new members. Team members help to foster community by keeping all Associates informed of Community and Associate news through personal and phone contacts as well as a newsletter.
