Who We Are

Mission Statement

The Companions of Christ is a private association of diocesan clerics whose members seek to live obedience, chastity, and poverty as they reside and minister in their diocese.


The Denver Companions of Christ were established December 12, 2007 in the Archdiocese of Denver. In their life, the Companions of Christ have three emphases: observance of the evangelical counsels within the context of their ordained ministry; commitment to a common life of prayer and fraternity; and a dedication to the "new evangelization" including catechesis, spiritual renewal, and the fostering of vocations in the local Church. This life is done through formation within in the Companions of Christ and the living of a life in agreement with the Ideals of the Companions of Christ.
