Description

Confraternities go back to the church of the patristic age; they flourished during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and they have continued to survive in the modern era. Today the Knights of Columbus and the Saint Vincent De Paul Societies in thousands of American Catholic parishes continue the work of medieval confraternities in combining fellowship, piety, and charity.
