WELCOME TO THE
UNION OF THE CATHOLIC APOSTOLATE WEBSITE
Founded on 9 January 1835 by St. Vincent Pallotti,
“The Catholic Apostolate, that is, the universal apostolate, which is common to all classes of people, consists in doing all that one must and can do for the great glory of God and for one’s own salvation and that of one’s neighbor.”
Pallottine Missionary Magazine "Faith and Charity"
We are pleased to present to you number 4 of the Pallottine Missionary Magazine "Faith and Charity" in the extraordinary missionary month, called by the Holy Father to invite the Church to pray and to reflect deeply on her missionary vocation.
As you will see, this issue contains testimonies from confreres and sisters of the Pallottine Family who work with young people in different parts of the world. But why dedicate an issue of the magazine to youth ministry? Because young people are the future of humanity and the Church dedicated a synod to them in October 2018. With this issue of our Missionary Magazine, we want to pay homage to all the missionaries who are dedicated to transmitting human and Christian values to young people, following the example of Our Founder Saint Vincent Pallotti.
