Associates of Wisdom
Who Are We?
Associates of Wisdom are lay women and men called by God to seek Wisdom by living out the spirituality, charism and mission of the Daughters of Wisdom following in the footsteps of St.Louis deMontfort and Blessed Marie Louise Trichet. We are committed to witnessing Wisdom's presence in the world through acts of compassion, justice, and care for creation. In journeying with the Daughters of Wisdom, Associates are a community within the community of the Montfortian family which includes the Daughters of Wisdom, Montfort Missionaries, and Brothers of St. Gabriel. Wisdom is the connection holding all the communities together.

What Do Associates Do?
Associates maintain their own lifestyle, independence, and personal commitments. Their work can range from full-time jobs to volunteerism, or simply supporting the Daughters of Wisdom in prayer and spirit.

How Do I Become an Associate?
Please contact a Co-Director of the Associate community listed below. Following the initial contact, we offer an orientation period, during which a Daughter of Wisdom or an Associate of Wisdom companions and shares the spirituality, mission, and history of the Congregation.
