The Founding Document  is our rule of life.  It was written utilizing a variety of sources and rules of life from other religious communities. In it, you will find the essential charism of our Order, which can best be described as a striving for the all-inclusive love of Christ.

We are not a regulation-driven Community, but one that focuses the Companions on spiritual growth, and service to God by service to others. We have eliminated some of the political aspects of such a religious organization, by observing a consistent practice of Community-wide consensus decision-making.
