Union of Catholic Apostolate


Union of Catholic Apostolate

Union of Catholic Apostolate is a Catholic association established by a Roman priest St. Vincent Pallotti in 1835. Its main task is to revive faith, rekindle love and unite efforts of all the faithful for the salvation of souls. A characteristic feature of the Union is the equal and subsidiary role envisaged for all its members, be it religious, ordained or lay.

The Union was officially recognised by the Pontifical Council for the Laity as an international church association on 28 October 2003. Its Statutes were then approved provisionally (ad experimentum) for the period of five years. The current President of the General Coordination Council of the UAC is Mons. Seamus Freeman.
