“Friendships begun in this world will be taken up again, never to be broken off.”
– St. Francis de Sales
Visitation Associates Program
Live Jesus summarizes Salesian spirituality; the special approach to God’s love which is Visitation’s legacy from Saints Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal. Learn this simple, yet challenging way of living as a member of the Visitation Associates Community.
The Visitation Associates Community embodies St. Francis de Sales affirmation and St. Jane de Chantal’s experience that the devout life can be lived in every form of life in the Church. The Visitation Sisters’ heritage is offered in a formal way to persons who want to affiliate with the Sisters through the Associate Community. Vatican Council II reminded us of the universal call to holiness and the focus on lay spirituality in the Church. In the tradition of Francis and Jane, Associates participate in a program of prayer, study and ministry. Participation in the program will enable each associate to:
- strengthen his/her baptismal commitment;
- study and live the spirituality of Francis and Jane;
- share life, talents and resources in service to others;
- support each other in the community of Associates.
