The Companionship

The Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross includes both lay and ordained women. Emily Morgan’s vision was a religious association focused on the centrality of the Cross and intercessory prayer in a troubled and hurting world. It continues to offer women “the sacrament of coming together” in prayer and in person through local chapters and at Adelynrood.

Companions carry on their individual ministries primarily in their local churches and communities. The chapters support individual efforts with prayer and interest while individual Companions support the corporate ministry at Adelynrood financially and by volunteering. An elected Companion-in-Charge, other officers and committees oversee the operations, programs and outreach of the Society with support from a small professional staff.
