The Society of the Sisters of the Church received two new Associates into the community at the Church of St Ann in Parsippany, NJ.

The new Associates made their first commitment and the 37 present Associates renewed their commitment after the Homily of the Mass, which was celebrated by Bishop Frank Rodimer.

The Sisters, the Associates and their guests then enjoyed a luncheon at the Reverend Martin McDonnell Church Hall.
A candidate must have the desire, maturity and ability to live and to serve in this new model of religious dedication.

After contacting one of the members the inquirer/candidate will follow the Process that has been determined by the Society.

Lay Associates
Lay men and women are invited to join the Sisters in their life commitment and their service to the local church. New classes are formed each year in October.

Associates are invited to live their baptismal commitment, to gain support in their efforts to live the Christian life, and to serve the local church.

Associates respond by deepening their spiritual life through prayer and meditation, by participating in Community gatherings and days of reflection and by sharing their time and talents in service to the local church.
