Pallottine fathers

The Pallottines are a Society of Apostolic Life within the Roman Catholic Church, founded in 1835 as SAC, societas apostolatus catholici, by the Roman priest St. Vincent Pallotti. Pallottines are part of the Union of Catholic Apostolate. The Pallottines administer one of the largest churches in the world, Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro in Côte d'Ivoire.
