Phillip Diana 2014_optThe Sisters’ mission is rooted in Cross, Word & Eucharist. How has your connection with one of these grown because of your preparation for the Associate Relationship?

Diana: “Cross, Word and Eucharist, all three, through study, have highlighted my awareness of how important each one is serving as an Associate, helping the people I meet and being a servant of Jesus.”

For the Sisters’ 125th anniversary, they commissioned a song titled “Deo Gratias” (Thanks be to God). What are some ways you express your thankfulness to God?

Diana: “Expressing my thankfulness to God consists of praying the Divine Praises, receiving the Eucharist, praying the rosary, having a gratitude list, giving back by helping the less fortunate, and thanking God for things as I go along through my day; it makes me stay positive.”

What are Associates?

The Associate Relationship is open to men and women who want to:

  • deepen their relationship
  • with God
  • partner with the Sisters in prayer and Gospel mission
  • model a new vision of community in their lives
  • strive to live Gospel values in their daily lives
