Saying goodbye to the Sisters at Sacred Heart Church, Hove with the Associates and Fr Kevin Dring, June 2016.

SMG Associates are lay men and women who feel called to live their secular vocation according to the spirit of Mother Magdalen Taylor. In their journey they are encouraged and supported by the SMG Sisters and in turn, they enrich and support the vocation of the Sisters. Each Associate group is attached to an SMG community, where they are welcome to join the Sisters for prayer, discussion and sharing.

Associates meet together regularly to share, reflect, celebrate liturgies and pray with their local SMG communities. They share in the SMG ministries and offer mutual support.

Associates are encouraged to live SMG values in daily life. They are carriers of the Charism of the Congregation.

Associates do not make a vowed commitment to the Congregation nor do they share responsibility for its internal life and government.

All are welcome to become Associates.  For more information, please contact:
