Little Company of Mary Sisters Africa

Who are the Greater Company of Mary, Affiliates and Associates of the LCM

The Greater Company of Mary is defined as that vast number of persons who are in any way involved in the ministry and life of the Little Company of Mary, thus co-workers, colleagues, volunteers, families of sisters, friends of any religious affiliation or denomination. Within this broad term belong the Affiliates and Associates, who are more closely linked with the Little Company of Mary.

Affiliates are people of all ages who make a commitment to join the Sisters in their ministry of prayer for the sick, suffering and dying of the world in union with Mary on Calvary. Their only obligation is to pray for the dying each day.

Associates are people of all ages who desire to deepen their baptismal consecration and are drawn to the vision of Mary Potter and called to share in the Charism, Spirituality and Mission of the Little Company of Mary.

 They are led through a Journey Programme, and make a commitment to pray for the sick, suffering and dying and further the Mission of the Church through the Little Company of Mary Spirituality and Charism. Associates live out the Charism and Spirituality in the circumstances of their daily lives.

The work and prayers we do is for the greater glory of God. You too can join us in caring, praying for the sick suffering and dying. If you do not feel called to be an LCM religious sister you can join us in giving your time and become more closely linked with us as an Affiliate or an Associate. Please see our contact details.
