It was felt that sharing Montfortian Spirituality and Charism with lay people was possible and was found very fruitful and effective for Religious life. Partnership with the laity shows how the spirit of God is at work in the world and in our Congregation. The purpose is to listen, reflect and to share on the possibility of beginning Lay associates and Lay Collaborators in our Institutions and Province.

Associate Member is a person who desires to live the Montfortian Charism in its spiritual and missionary dimension. He/she may or may not be a collaborator in the mission. The ordinary designation for the member is “Associate Member.”

Lay Collaborators share in the Mission of the Congregation and the Province. Any person of good will who wants to work hand in hand with us can become a Collaborator. The Partnership Commission is a body of the Province to propose ways and means to achieve these goals in the Province.
