Forming a New WCO Band

  • Determine that there is no Band needing a new member near you.
  • Connect with a WCO member and discern if forming a new Band is your leading.
  • Connect with at least two others who share this leading.
  • Begin to meet as a Band under the guidance of a WCO member.
  • Allow the process of contemplative practices in community to deepen the lives of those in your new Band.
  • Discern that you and other members of your new Band are ready to take vows of membership in the WCO.
  • Become a member of the WCO and your Band becomes an established Band.
