Becoming a Lay Associate

Our new Lay Associate Program is growing in membership out of a desire from Resurrectionists to have more collaboration with lay people and respond to their desire to have a deeper lived experience of "Resurrecting Society." This exciting new program is called "Apostles of the Resurrection".

Saturday, September 10th was the latest Apostles of the Resurrection Gathering at St. Stanislaus Parish in Hamilton.  CR’s, Apostles, candidates and people who wanted to learn more about this new emerging group were in attendance.  A time of faith sharing, fellowship, and delicious Polish food offerings were all part of this delightful event. May God continue to bless our efforts to live out the CR charism and mission!

Fr. Michal Kruszewski, C.R., Fr. Bernard Hylla, C.R., (The Superior General for the Congregation of the Resurrection) and Fr. Tim Uniac, C.R. (The Vicar General for the Congregation of the Resurrection) are being tempted by some of the mouthwatering Polish fare! Will they or won't they???

Fr. Adam Wroblewicz, C.R. (Pastor of St. Joseph's Parish in Brantford) looking forward to a delicious lunch!

Other attendees including Fr. Sudie MacDonald, C.R. making a difficult decision as to what to select for their lunch. So many good things to choose from!

Thanks for all your work!


As Resurrectionists we invite lay people to live out their vocation to holiness by sharing in our Resurrectionist spirituality, and to work with us for the resurrection of society by embracing our Charism and Mission in their everyday lives. In order to commit himself or herself more fully, a lay person may wish to become our Lay Associate – an Apostle of the Resurrection.
