elcome to the Companions of The Way! We are a Christian confraternity seeking to live out a new monastic way of life in the 21st century, meaning we seek to be disciples of Jesus while fully living in the world. Our charism and spirituality is rooted in the Catholic & Anglican traditions of English Christianity and nurtured by the Benedictine monastic rhythm of “ora et labora,” or “prayer and work.”

Our mission springs from our motto “discipuli facientes discipuli,” or “disciples making disciples.” Our desire is to see members in every parish promoting and living out Christian discipleship. We want all Christians to experience the over-abundant life (John 10:10) of joy, love, and peace that comes from taking up your cross and following Jesus. We also wish for our spirituality of discipleship to be a vehicle for the reconciliation of Catholic and non-Catholic Christians.

Membership in the confraternity is open to Catholic men  or women, single or married, ordained or lay, living in community with other Companions or with their families. We wholeheartedly welcome Non-Catholic Christians to join our community through our Friends of The Companions program. 

Join us to engage in the ancient “faith once and for all handed down to the saints” (Jude 3).
