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:
Secular Franciscan Order:
Brothers and Sisters of Penance:
Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary:
Confraternity of Penitents:
Thank you and enjoy!
