CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMUNITIES

The new name of the reorganized Sodalities of Our Lady. Groups of men and women, both adults and young people, whose purpose is to develop their Christian vocation in the world. The reorganization was done in the light of the Second Vatican Council and the new statutes promulgated Pope Paul VI in 1971. Building on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, Christian Life Communities are located in more than forty countries and have their World Federation office in Rome.
