Any association or a society will be known and seen only by looking into its aim and goal. By describing the purposes of associations of the faithful in the Catholic Church, their diverse categories and organization, it is possible to develop a precise idea of their nature. But all these are only common denominators. Each association adopts its own configuration, which establishes its specificity. Some well known pious associations are: Society of St. Vincent de Paul; Society of Propagation of faith; Apostleship of Prayer; Holy Childhood league; Priests’ Eucharistic League, Legion of Mary, etc.
Indeed, the precise objectives of all these types of pious associations of the faithful in the Catholic Church can be as numerous and varied as there are facets to Christian life. The Christian faithful are free to form and direct associations for purposes of charity or piety or for the promotion of the Christian vocation in the world and to hold meetings for the common pursuit of the following purposes.
a) fostering a more Christian life;
b) promoting public worship;
c) promoting Christian doctrine;
d) exercising other works of the apostolate such as evangelization; works of piety and works of charity
