“O Jesus, deign to open Your Loving Heart to me too, and permit me to take refuge in it, so that I may live hidden in God with You.” – from Divine Intimacy

Our local chapter in Osceola, MO is under the direction of Bishop Rebecca Pierce, a Lifelong Professed Companion of our Order.
Dispersed Members and Oblates
Our order has members and oblates (associates) that are not affiliated with one of our local chapters. Most of these dispersed members live and work independently, and many of them maintain local ministries, church memberships, and prayer lives consistent with our rule of life.
There is a long history within Christian monasticism of communities having associates called oblates. These are people who support the order without seeking the responsibilities of membership.
If you are called to become a member or oblate of the Companions of the Holy Spirit, and there is not a local chapter near you, please contact us about dispersed membership.
