Default Lay/Secular/Third Orders, Oblates, & Confraternities

I have recently been researching some of these associations for the laity and thought others might benefit from a handy list.

I have a small start -- please feel free to add more but please restrict it to those that are Catholic and "Officially Sanctioned" by the Church. I believe this will be made a Sticky so please try to keep the format below and try to only link the official site of an order or confraternity. If the site is specific to a region, please put the region in parenthesis next to the name:

---------------------------
Third Orders (i.e. Lay or Secular Orders)
Carmelite Third Order:
http://www.ocarm.org/eng/ord4/4gen-eng.htm
Lay Dominicans:
http://www.3op.org/
Secular Franciscan Order:
http://www.nafra-sfo.org/

Oblates
Benedictine:
http://www.osb.org/obl/index.html

Confraternities
Brothers and Sisters of Penance:
http://www.bspenance.org/
Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary:
http://www.rosary-center.org/
Confraternity of Penitents:

Thank you and enjoy!

Bruno, there are two Carmelite Orders, the O.Carm. - which you have already listed - and the Discalced Carmelites (the reform of St. Teresa); both have Secular (Third) Orders. Here is the website for the Secular Discalced Carmelites:
