Third Order, Fellowship, Associates

The Community has a group of Oblates and Associate Members, formed as a mutual supportive link. We do not provide a rule of life; instead we ask our Oblates and Associate Members to add to their existing rule the daily use of the Vincentian Prayer. Oblates are also asked to use the Holy Paraclete hymn and one of the Daily Offices, thereby joining in spirit in the Divine Office of the Community. Oblates are encouraged to make an annual retreat. Associate Members support us by their prayers and annual subscription.
