Who We Are

Located in every continent except Antarctica, we are lay men and women of the Pauline Family who have made the Promise to be a Cooperator. Although scattered over many nations and culturally diverse, we are united in our commitment to communicate hope in Jesus Christ using the new means of social communication.

Mission
The Mission of the Pauline Cooperators is to expand the operation of the Pauline Family under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. “In other words, our mission is to make known to the whole world Jesus Christ, Way, Truth and Life, through the proclamation done with the use of the media of social communication.” - Statute of the APC

Activities
Pauline laity have flexibility to decide how they will cooperate with their professed sisters and brothers in the Pauline mission. While they do not vow obedience or work under a superior, they keep their eye on St. Paul and insert themselves into the world.

Spirituality

“The Pauline Family … does not have many particulars, special devotions or excessive formalities. The secret of greatness is to model ourselves on God, living in Christ… to insert ourselves like wild olives into the living olive, the Eucharistic-Christ; to … be nourished by every phrase of the Gospel, according to the Spirit of St. Paul.” – Blessed Alberione

Lay Apostles

Each Pauline Cooperator must discern the form that the call to apostleship in the media takes. There are many gifts, but one Spirit. The modern apostle takes initiative within the scope of his or her gifts. “To live and to give to the world Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life.” – Blessed Alberione

Our Pauline Heritage

The Pauline Family got its start in Italy running printing presses and publishing diocesan newsletters and pamphlets. Today’s continued need for apostles of the “good press” Cooperators as well as professed Paulines involved in movies, television, radio, publishing houses, social networking, and more.
