A vowed religious community in the monastic tradition of the Episcopal Church
Do you want to be involved in the apostolate of our Community, but not as a vowed member? Do you want to really be of help to one of our postulants, novices, or professed members? Then, consider becoming a Companion of The Community of the Mother of Jesus. A Companion is a relative, personal friend, parishioner, or a person who lives in the same geographic area as a postulant, novice, or professed member of this Community. A Companion is a person who desires to support the Community through prayer, friendship, acts of service to the neighbors who are in need, and quarterly financial gifts to this Community. Companions gather frequently with the postulant, novice, or professed member in their area for prayer, fellowship, and Christian service projects. A Companion must be at least eighteen years of age and need not be a member of The Episcopal Church.
Each Companion is asked to pray this prayer each day:
“O Lady of Cana, I come before you to pray for the family of the Community of the Mother of Jesus. Help the novices and professed members to be people of justice, tenderness, humility, and contemplation, who serve the neighbor in need. Help those whom God is calling to this Community to hear and answer 'yes' to that call. Help me and all the Companions to be the Spirit-filled people God is calling us to be and become. In the power of Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen."
As a Companion you are
