What Companions do:

Companions keep the Way of the Cross by striving to be incarnational, to bear witness to God's love by serving as God’s hands and feet throughout the world.

Companions all take vows, but each of us has her own ways of living out the vows. We don't take stands on issues corporately, but we support each other by prayer and friendship as each Companion embraces her vocation.

Aims of the Society

  • To bind together by thanksgiving, common intercession, and simple rule those who desire to follow more closely in the steps of our Lord’s most holy life.
  • To foster the spirit of thankfulness and Christian joy.
  • To encourage constant prayer for others.
  • To pray for justice and peace, for the unity of God’s people, and the mission of God in the world.
  • To inspire and maintain an earnest effort for simplicity of life and for the patient, joyous bearing of the cross.
  • To deepen our obedience to our Lord in all aspects of life.
