Societies of Apostolic Life & Prelature


Men and women in Societies of Apostolic Life or (personal) prelature differ from those in Institutes of Consecrated Life because both the former do not take religious vows. Societies of apostolic life are usually formed in answer to a specific need of the Church. A personal prelature is also not an institute of consecrated life as its members lead secular, everyday lives in the world. This is different from religious institutes whose members take vows and lead lives out of the world.
