Who are IBVM Associates? They are women and men, single and married, young and old, who want to share in the spirituality and mission of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary as their own life commitments permit.
The Associate Relationship differs from province to province within the IBVM. However, all associates have the opportunity to deepen their spirituality and to learn and live the charism of Mary Ward in the 21st century.
