For many years, the Paulist Fathers have worked together with lay people in their foundations and ministries. To allow them to have an even more intimate connection with the Paulist Fathers, the Paulists created the Paulist Associate program. Men and women – even non-Catholic Christians – are invited to freely associate themselves with the Paulist spirituality and charism by making a commitment to embody the ideals of the Paulists in their daily living. With these associates, the charism of the Paulists – incarnating the Roman Catholic faith in North American culture – is extended beyond the limited membership of the Paulist community itself.
We invite all Paulist Associates to join our Facebook group, with news, photos, thoughts, and reflections from Associate communities across North America. The group is open only to existing Associates. If you’re not an Associate, please consider becoming an Associate.
