Companions of St. Marie of the Incarnation:

The Companions of St. Marie are sisters and lay women who gather as a faith-sharing group. They are inspired by the life and writings of Blessed St. Marie of the Incarnation, the first North American Ursuline. St. Marie was a wife, mother, businesswoman, missionary, and mystic. The Companions meet four times a year to continue learning from the writings of St. Marie and to support each other as they apply her teachings to their own lives.
