Associate Mission 

The name of a house of clergy and laity living under a common rule but no formal vows, subject to episcopal oversight, for evangelization and for educational and charitable enterprises. The first associate mission was Nashotah House, Wisconsin (1842), followed by other early foundations such as Valle Crucis, North Carolina (1847) and Seabury Mission, Faribault, Minnesota (1857).
