The Structure of the Society of Catholic Apostolate

The Society of the Catholic Apostolate as a society of apostolic life has a threefold hierarchical structure. The highest administrative body is the General Administration, which has its headquarters in Rome.

The second level of organization is constituted by the so-called Provinces and Regions. These are independent, organizational entities which have a certain number of members. The Provincial/Regional Leadership coordinates the life and activity of the respective entity, makes personnel decisions and is responsible for the spiritual and communal life of the members. The superiors of such entities are called Provincial or Regional Rectors. The Society is divided into 14 Provinces and 6 Regions. Each one of has a proper name, which, at the same time, determines its titular and patronal feast. On the third organizational level we have the Local Communities, in which the Pallottines live and work. In the whole world around 300 canonically erected Local Communities exist. Some of them are small and consist of three or four members, and the others (i.e. houses of formation, major seminaries) have larger number of members.

The Composition of the General Administration

The General Administration is elected every six years by the General Assembly, which brings together confreres representing different Pallottine communities throughout the world. The current General Administration was elected in October 2022. The General Administration is made up of the General Council, composed of the Rector General and four Councillors. Each of the five members of the General Council represents one of the main languages or geographical and cultural regions of the Society. In addition to the General Council, the General Management includes the Procurator General, the Secretary General and the General Economist. The Procurator General is responsible for liaison between the Society and the Holy See, the Secretary General for the day-to-day management of the Society, and the General Bursar for the management of the Society’s property and finances.
