This is all I'm finding so far and it doesn't work, don't have permissions. This is much easier to do in Oracle.

Q. Is there a better way?

Select  column1,
            column2,
            (SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET('SQLNCLI','Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=Yes;Database=Database1','EXEC Get_Roles(272389)')) as [Roles]

From ....

Use OPENQUERY instead:
Select  column1,
            column2,
            (SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY(LOCALSERVER,'EXEC Database1.dbo.Get_Roles(272389)')) as [Roles]
From .... 

Open in new window

But it is not a better way. First of all it requires a loopback setup to the same server:
EXEC sp_addlinkedserver @server = 'LOCALSERVER',  @srvproduct = '',
                        @provider = 'SQLOLEDB', @datasrc = @@servername

Open in new window

Secondly, using it a new connection is generated.
This and a dozen other methods is thoroughly discussed here
I personally recommend creating a user defined function, or a view because a Stored Procedure is by design is intended for different uses

Strange. If server is local and you are using trusted connection, you don't need the OPENROWSET at all. Just give the full path to the object:
Select  column1,
             column2,
             (SELECT * FROM Database1.dbo.Get_Roles(272389)') as [Roles]
 From ....

I would like to use a Function, but I cannot get it to return a 'For XML Path' object.

I basically query some tables and group with a CTE then return a long string of characters, it's not actual xml format

Maybe you can give me a tip on how to make this SP a Function?

[Current SP]
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[Get_Roles] 
(
    @ContactID int
)
As
....
;With CTE as (
Select [Name], [Affiliation], ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY [Name] ORDER BY [Name]) AS RN
From #Affiliations 

)
Select Reverse(Stuff(Reverse(Substring((SELECT [Name] + [Affiliation] + '; ' + CHAR(10)
							FROM CTE
                                                        Where RN = 1
							For XML PATH(''), elements), 1, 1000)), 1, 3, '')) as [Affiliations]
