Who are the Passionist Associates?

Passionist Associates are individuals, both men and women, who in a spirit of mutuality, bond themselves more closely with the mission and the spirituality of the Passionist Congregation, Province of St. Paul of the Cross. This mutuality recognizes that both professed Passionists and Passionist Associates contribute to the Passionist Mission in the world today. 

Those desiring to participate more fully in the life of the faith community and share their individual gifts and talents in the context of the Passionist Charism and Mission may be selected as Associate candidates. After at least a two-year period of discernment, orientation, formal acceptance, and formation a covenant is made between the Passionist Associate and the local Passionist Community of Priests and Brothers. Once the initial covenant is made, each Associate is then required to recovenant him or her self to the Passionist Community every year on the Feast Day of St. Paul of the Cross. 

The Associates enter into this relationship centered on living the Gospel message in the spirit of the Passionist Congregation and the charism of its founder, St. Paul of the Cross. The Passionists for their part invite their Associates to participate in some aspects of their life of prayer, community, and ministerial outreach. The Passionists also provide their Associates with the opportunities for ongoing faith formation in the spirit of the Congregation of the Passion. 

Formed in 1996, the first group of Passionist Associates, was covenanted in Riverdale NY. Since that time a number of the St. Paul of the Cross Province foundations have either covenanted members or associates in formation. The number of Associates from Pittsburgh and Scranton Pennsylvania, North Palm Beach Florida, Shrewsbury Massachusetts,  Riverdale New York, and Greenville North Carolina now number around sixty-six. On November 6, 2011 the Bishop Molloy Retreat House in Jamaica, New York, covenented 8 new associates.
