The Catholic Apostolate Center, a ministry of the Society of the Catholic Apostolate (Pallottines) – Immaculate Conception Province, was founded in 2011 to respond to the needs of the Church through developing formation programs for the New Evangelization, assisting pastoral ministers in deepening collaboration with one another, and providing formation and apostolic opportunities for members and collaborators of the Union of Catholic Apostolate.
The Center takes its inspiration from the spirituality of St. Vincent Pallotti and achieves its goals through hosting conferences, seminars, webinars, and presentations as well as providing online and print resources.
