Sister Companion Overview


Young adult participants in the Ministry Leadership Program are matched with a sister companion who serves as a mentor and advisor throughout the program. This pairing provides an opportunity for a positive intergenerational formation experience around faith, spirituality and the call to serve. The participant and sister companion meet once a month at the participant’s place of employment for fellowship and discussion. They also work together to develop a mission integration project for the participant’s school.

 

Qualities of a Sister Companion

Based on the goals and components of the Ministry Leadership Program, we are looking for sisters who are:

  • Enthusiastic about their lives
  • Open to learning more about the life experience of young adults today
  • Appreciative of diversity
  • Able to recognize and encourage the good in others
  • Good listeners
  • Willing to share their own experiences
  • Respectful of confidentiality


Commitment of a Sister Companion

  • Attend monthly workshops
  • Meet monthly with young adult participant outside of the workshops
  • Provide support and advice for the young adult participant in the development of a mission integration project at his/her school
  • Prepare a reflection or prayer to share with the group at one workshop


If you are interested in serving as a sister companion and were not involved in the previous Ministry Leadership program, we ask that you submit an application due April 20. If you are interested in applying, please contact Sr. Kate Hine, SND at khine@ndec.org for more information and an application.
