Congratulations and a Warm Welcome


new associatedOn Sunday, January 8th, blessed by diluvial and drought-relieving rains, 5 women pronounced their Covenants as Associate Members in the Congregation of the Daughters of the Holy Spirit.  These new recruits are all from California and join the ranks of a large constituency of DHS Associates on the West Coast of the USA.

The ceremony was held at the chapel and large conference room in the Old Mercy Hospital in Merced, CA.

The new Associates, left to right in photo, Betty Cates, Fran Anderson, Susana Aguirre, Luz Martinez and Sue Silva, planned their own ritual readings, music and art work.  Their chosen theme “Filled with the Spirit” was reflected in the dove captured in the photo.  They took the image of the dove (Holy Spirit) and wrote in the names of all the California Associates and then added in their own names on the upper wing.

The Associate Branch of the DHS is growing consistently as men and women realize the value of the charism of the Congregation to their lives in today’s world.  More information on this group is available on this web site by going to the Home Page drop down ‘Who we Are” and clicking on Associates.  You may also contact us directly at for links to Associate coordinators on both coasts of the USA.
