The Companions of Jesus of Nazareth is currently a virtually connected group of men and women throughout the world in different states of life. Some are Catholic religious, priests, and lay persons; and others are members of various protestant traditions, both ordained and lay. All are united in one love of Jesus, that is inspired by the Holy Spirit, and the witness of the life of Bl. Charles de Foucauld. Each is seeking to live their "own Nazareth," which is the particular place that God has planted us. Thus, each member of the Companions is formed in the spirituality of Charles de Foucauld and is nourished by the community to follow Jesus wherever he may lead.
To build a globally diverse community that guides women and men to become more like Jesus in the particular places in which God has planted them. We seek to do so by the communion of Saints especially the spirituality of Blessed Charles DeFoucauld.
WHAT WE DO
We currently offer a virtual formation program that involves a monthly reading. At the end of the month, each person can choose to share a written reflection on the reading.
Our community consists of married and single, men and women, living throughout the world, and working in varied capacities. Our community is a "living" entity, thus it remains open to the Spirit to organically develop.
