  • continue their own lifestyles as they strive to live in the Spirit of Pentecost
  • feel at home with the DHS spirituality
  • sense a call to be available in the Holy Spirit's mission of life and love
  • live out their commitment in their families, workplaces, parishes with all those they encounter
  • keep in contact with a local DHS community

  • participate in associate regional meetings, assemblies and retreats
  • may share in various DHS committees

INITIAL FORMATION OF DHS ASSOCIATES occurs in small group settings involving an Associate and a Sister and includes the
discussion and the study of these topics:

  • Call to holiness: fuller understanding of the candidates' Baptismal commitment
  • DHS History/Charism: Historical development of the Congregation and its Gift to the Church
  • DHS Mission and the Mission of Jesus
  • DHS Spirituality: reflection on the Word of God, the Trinity, Pentecost and Mary
  • Discernment as a way of life  
  • Becoming a part of the Associate Body - local, national, international
  • God's Covenant with his people and the candidates' covenant with the Congregation.
