Our Associates

Who are they?

These are single or married men and women, who feel a special call to the Bannabikira Sisters’ Charism. They undergo a formal training after which they are commissioned to live the Bannabikira’s Charism in their own individual profession. If you would take the Bannabikira Sisters to be like the twelve apostles of Jesus, then the Bannabikira’s associates can be likened to Jesus’ disciples. As our Lord said, the harvest is great but the labourers are few. Where the Bannabikira Sisters cannot reach, their associates carry out their mission.
