Associations of the Faithful

An association of the faithful is a group of the Christian faithful who unite in a common effort: (a.) to foster a more perfect life, to promote public worship or Christian doctrine, or (b.) to exercise other works of the apostolate such as initiatives of evangelization, works of piety or charity, and those which transform the secular world through the workings of a Christian spirit. An association of the faithful may be composed of clerics, lay persons, or clerics and lay persons together and such associations are distinct from institutes of consecrated life and societies of apostolic life.
