The “Companions” are an extension of our Community. They are Christian people who have asked to journey alongside us, sharing our Paschal Spirituality. The initial commitment for three years comes with an encouragement to pray, to serve and join us and each other when possible for liturgical celebrations, for social gatherings, cultural and spiritual moments and to take part in the mission aspects of our canonical life. These moments enable us all to support, encourage and challenge each other to widen the Community. The experience has been enriching for us all. The celebration of Foundation Day in October, the annual Mass for the Dead in November, beginning Advent together – these are some key moments in our journeying as a wider group.
Following General Chapter XI, Companions have been involved with us in exploring the theme of Finding Hope in Fragile Places. Currently this is leading us to explore Climate Change issues. For more information see our Climate Change page.
Many people are involved with the Community in different ways – we are always looking to involve others in each of the areas where we live and work.
