In the following article Sister Maureen Fiedler, SL, host of the Interfaith Voices radio program tells of the tremendous success the Sisters of Loretto have had in developing co-membership in their vowed community. I was struck by their similarities to the Community of Passionist Partners. It seems we have much in common such as lay members sharing in our unique charisms, individual commitments by each member and common gatherings for prayer, discernment and fun. What we don’t have in common is they have many more co-members than we have Partners. I wonder if we could learn from them? What do you think?
We are a community of laymen and laywomen who, with vowed Passionists, seek to share in the charism of St. Paul of the Cross through prayer, ongoing spiritual formation, and proclamation of the message of Christ Crucified.
