Orders want to ensure their missions continue beyond their own existence, whether it's through turning over programs and ministries to non-profits, dioceses or churches, making them self-standing entities, or having them run by associates. As they look to the future, the Marianites of Holy Cross in New Orleans, who were founded before the U.S. Civil War, have joined in a covenant relationship with the Sisters of the Most Holy Sacrament from Lafayette.
