Visitation Companions are individuals who choose to deepen their commitment to the ministry of the Visitation Monastery through prayer, study of Salesian spirituality, and regular service. Visitation Companions seek to extend the Salesian charism both on the Northside and in their own walks of life. A nine-month period of formation includes monthly small group meetings in which prospective Companions study and pray with the writings of St. Francis de Sales, St. Jane de Chantal, and Salesian scholars as they reflect on their own spiritual journeys. Visitation Companions then welcome new members in a commitment ceremony.
Currently, women and men of diverse ages and faith traditions from all over the Twin Cities are Companions. They meet at St. Jane House on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
