IAD – Intercongregational Associate Directors

IAD represent congregations of women religious in Eastern Pennsylvania, specifically the Philadelphia area, Reading, and Scranton.

Associate directors from these areas gather four times a year with the purpose of offering mutual support, sharing relevant ideas, praying together, and living in the mystery of how the charism of each congregation is alive and well in associates and companions.

Every two years IAD plans a day of reflection open to all Associates and Sisters.

Representative Congregations are as follows:

Bernardine Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis
Franciscan Sisters of Philadelphia
Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart
Handmaids of the Sacred Heart
Medical Mission Sisters
Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary
Missionary Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
Society of the Holy Child Jesus
Sisters of the Holy Redeemer
Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Philadelphia
Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Scranton
Sisters of St. Joseph, Chestnut Hill

The invitation is open to other Associate Directors in eastern Pennsylvania to join the Intercongregational Associate Directors.
