Women and men who express an interest to be Associates are directed to the Regional Administrator. They submit a letter of application that includes a curriculum vitae.  A personal interview with the Administrator or with the Administrator's delegate is arranged. 

Applicants belong to an RCWP Canada led community in which they are active participants.  They journey for at least a year with the community during which time they discern their call to serve in one or several of the following ministries:

a) prayerful spiritual support which helps us to spread a reform movement in the Roman Catholic Church in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council;
b) moral support which encourages us to continue our priestly ministry despite the challenges we face;
c) practical support and the gift of their talents, which allows us to develop educational, pastoral, and social justice programs in our communities; and
d) financial support to facilitate the ordination of women who are called and gifted to priestly ministry, regardless of their ability to cover their own costs.

Upon recommendation by the local community, the Regional Leadership Circle accepts a person as an Associate. The acceptance shall be communicated to the entire RCWP Canada community by the Administrator and an appropriate commissioning service is celebrated.
