BVM Association

Who is a BVM Associate?

Spanish Text

Associates are women and men from many faith traditions who are single, married or widowed. Associates live independently and maintain a mutual relationship with vowed members of the BVM Community.

With BVMs, Associates affirm the BVM charism/mission of "being freed and helping others enjoy freedom in God's steadfast love," the core values of freedom, education, charity and justice, and the traditions of the BVM Community.

Mutuality of Relationships

Associates and vowed members form a community of believers who embrace the gospel vision as lived out through the charism of Mary Frances Clarke. This community provides a means of mutual support in prayer and in service to our sisters and brothers, reaching out to alleviate the hardships found in the local and global community.

Associates offer the vowed members a broader base of support, friendship and gospel vision. Vowed members offer to those who identify with the spirit, mission, goals and values of the BVM Community as Associates, the opportunity for shared prayer life, bonds of friendship and community, and mutual support in ministry. Each is enriched, as they open themselves to be freed by one another in mutual friendship.

BVM Association Today

A Faithful Present, A Hopeful Future is a publication that contains articles from authors among the associate community who have taken time to reflect and write about how they live out the BVM charism and core values within the context of their daily lives.

In these pages, may you experience the living, breathing spirit of Mary Frances Clarke and the BVM associate community.
