The Companions and Associates of OGS
Attached to the Oratory are Companions and Associates and they are considered to be an important part of the Oratory family. Companions keep a Rule of Life based on the Rule observed by the professed brethren. They undertake to attend the Eucharist on Sundays and some weekdays, to pray regularly, to spend time in retreat and to be regular in alms-giving, confession and praying for the Oratory.
Companions report quarterly to one of the professed brethren and where possible are invited to take part in local Chapter meetings and retreats. Those who wish to become Companions are invited to examine the Rule of Life and to try and live it for a few months before being formally admitted.
Associates are friends of the Oratory who wish to receive its annual report, newsletter and intercession lists etc, and to pray for the Oratory.
