Consecrated Life

Consecrated Laypeople

Consecrated lay people are men and women of the Church “in the heart of the world”. Responding to God’s call, they have consecrated themselves to Him in order to serve others in the world; influencing the world and evangelising it by virtue of their Baptism and Confirmation. By cooperating actively with grace, making a prayer of their daily lives, they lead a life as brothers or sisters in common according to a particular manner of life. They strive for holiness and the perfection of charity through the observance of their constitutions.

They can be members either of a Society of Apostolic Life or of a Secular Institute.
