In September 2022, the Anglican monastic community of the Sisterhood of St. John the Divine will begin the fifth year of the Companions Program. This is an opportunity for women ages 21 and up to join the Sisters for 11 months either as a residential or online Companion.
Residential companions spend a year living alongside the Sisters. Throughout the year, they worship with the Sisters, build community, learn from a healthy traditional community, and develop spiritual disciplines and monastic values that they then carry with them into their future lives.
Online companions explore being “monastics in the world” within the framework of work, studies and/or family life. Meeting through zoom, online companions build community among themselves and the Sisterhood, learn how to apply monastic values to their daily lives and cultivate spiritual practices without leaving family, work or home.
