The Archconfraterity in Rome

The Church in Her wisdom gave us the "archconfraternity" - to involve laymen more in the life of the Church.

It worked. 

Now we need to use this model again.


  1. Does anyone know the law regarding confraternities? Specifically, can a pastor found one himself, or does he need the bishop's approval? And, what is the difference between a confraternity and an archconfraternity? Any information on this would be greatly welcomed and appreciated. Many thanks.

  2. "Now we need to use this model again."

    you mean to dress up silly and walk around like that?

  3. Rather rare to see men in church in Italy, let alone involved.
