Geographical Structure of the Order of Saint Luke

Provinces and Provincial Companions

While the Order of Saint Luke is a dispersed Order, not requiring members to live together, we work hard at remaining connected. One of the ways that we do this is to determine geographic areas, called provinces, each of which is overseen by a Provincial Companion.

According to our Constitution and By-Laws, Provincial Companions work together with the Provincial General to support local chapters and associations. They are also the primary means of communication to OSL members who do not have a chapter nearby. They support the spiritual formation of these individuals and of the chapters. Finally, they participate in the work of the nominating committee when new officers are needed for the Order.

Currently, we have a number of wonderful sisters and brothers serving our Order as Provincial Companions. You can find that list below. If you have never contacted or been contacted by the Provincial Companion in your area, I’d encourage you to reach out and say “hi!”
