What is the CSA Associate Relationship?
Associates of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes make a commitment to God within the charism, mission, and spirit of the congregation. Through the associate relationship, there is a special relationship between the associates and the congregation as a religious community.
The associate relationship is an experience of mutuality within our distinct ways of life. Associates offer to the congregation a faith perspective from life experience and responsibilities in single and married life, in family, work, and society. The congregation offers a spiritual tradition, and a distinct charism of serving people that is lived out in mission, ministry, and community. Associates and sisters gather for sharing of faith and mutual support, and collaborate as partners to further the mission of Christ and the mission of the congregation in today's world.
