An individual who supports The Founding Document of the Order and wishes to participate in the daily life of the Companions without taking vows may become an Associate Companion, either at-large or as part of a particular House of the Order, as mutually determined by all parties involved. Associate Companions do not wear the habit or the medallion of the Order and do not use the title Brother or Sister. The Associate Companion receives a pin to symbolize his/her affiliation with the Order.
Associate members, following the precepts of The Founding Document, develop a "Rule of Life." The purpose of the Rule of Life is to strengthen union with God by bringing order and discipline to one's life. The Rule helps individuals to offer themselves to God and assists in keeping the heart open to God's love and will in his/her life.
Anyone wishing to become an Associate may submit a written request to the Associate Program Director or to the House Coordinator to which they will be attached.
The acceptance of an Associate Companion is formalized by the Service of Acceptance.

Through this union, we find fulfillment in the offering of adoration, thanksgiving, and petition for personal needs and the needs of the world. Associates are encouraged to begin and end each day with prayer. One half hour of silence per day is desirable for personal prayer and meditation.
