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".
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.
Apostles of the Resurrection and Resurrectionists gathered at St Louis Parish in Waterloo this past Saturday to join in prayer, listen to a talk by CR seminarian Raphael Ma, and share a meal. Recommitting ourselves to the resurrection of society was the focus of the talk. "People first, then mechanisms" a quote from our founder Bogdan Janski used by seminarian Raphael Ma. May this approach continue to resurrect society!
