Who are we?

The Society of the Catholic Apostolate is an international community of priests and brothers, founded by a Roman priest Fr. Vincent Pallotti (1795-1850). From the Founder’s surname a popular name was coined: Pallottine Fathers and Brothers. Our official name in Latin reads Societas Apostolatus Catholici. Initial letters of the Latin name make an abbreviation SAC which follows he surnames of the Pallottines.

Where are we?

The cradle of the Society was Rome, but already during St. Vincent Pallotti’s lifetime his confraters started to work in London and in other towns in Italy. Gradually the Pallottine presence spread on all unpredictable and astonishing, other Times everything was planned and prepared. The turmoil of war, political clashes, the needs of local churches and individual desires of particular Confreres made us present where we are. The number of Pallottines in different regions of the world has changed according to the number of local vocations or missionaries sent to various missions. At present Pallottine Fathers and Brothers work in over 40 countries. The greatest communities are those in Poland, Germany, Brazil, India and various African countries.

  1. I am so happy to join with you as a member of the Society of Friends in gratitude for the gift of the Pallottine Fathers who have served us at St Agnes Parish in Waterloo. We have been very blessed by the Pallottine Fathers and eagerly pray for many more wonderful Priests. Many blessings upon all who are discerning vocations and those working so diligently to help guide and form them. May God bless you all abundantly!

  2. As a Member of UAC in Australia, I was recently blessed to meet Father Mirek, who came to our Pallottine Parish in Syndal, Melbourne and shared a beautiful mass and Adoration of Divine Mercy with us. On behalf of Father Pat, Father Ralph and everyone in our Parish, we pray for Father Mirek and his Pallottine Seminarians of Poland that they may continue to grow more deeply into the Spirituality of St Vincent and receive continued blessings from The Holy Father. It was an honour to meet you Dear Father Mirek. May The Lord Bless you in all you do. Love and Blessings. Georgina Hickey UAC Australia🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
