IPF Associates are to embody and cultivate a receptivity to the Living Word of God, a joyful, humble and obedient acceptance of the Church’s Magisterium, a transforming devotion to Jesus’ Real Presence in the Eucharist, a frequent celebration of the Sacraments of Eucharist and Penance and a sincere love for the diocesan priesthood.

Associates of IPF are those who have a heartfelt desire to support the charism and mission of IPF and its programs. They offer a prayerfully considered, specific commitment and availability to IPF as an expression of this desire.

Specific means by which associates incarnate their commitment include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Daily relational prayer
  • Frequent reception of the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Penance
  • Intercessory prayer for the mission of IPF
  • Commitment of support and availability to IPF where possible

I would like to propose the following as my commitment of availability for the programs and/or other needs of the Institute:

I understand this is to be an ongoing commitment, renewed each year.

At the end of each three-year period, this commitment will be reviewed and then renewed, or renewed with modifications, as mutually agreed upon between the Moderator or his delegate and the member.
