The Federation Associate/Companion Leaders Committee, forms a supportive link and communication network among the Sister/Associate Directors of the Associate Movement within the three Canadian congregations.  The Committee meets annually to share ways of furthering growth and development within the CSJ Associate/Companion Communities. Conferences are organized for the over 500 lay persons who join with their vowed Sisters in furthering their shared mission of bringing unifying, healing and reconciling love to our broken world.

Associate/Companion Leaders Gathering

Villa St. Joseph, Cobourg, Ontario

May 29-31, 2016

The group received a warm welcome to its Annual Gathering from the Associates of the CSJ Canada Congregation, at the lovely setting of St. Joseph Villa in Cobourg, on the shores of Lake Ontario. The days spent together were well enjoyed, attending to various business aspects, sharing, praying, as well as social times. A new initiative this year was a portion of the time together devoted to a silent retreat, which was so very much appreciated that the decision was taken to have a similar event in May of 2017.

A photograph of the group is shown below.
