Biographical / Historical
A religious order or religious institute is a consecrated life community of brothers and sisters who have professed vows. In the Catholic Church, a "consecrated life" is a type of Christian living that mirrors the life of Jesus Christ. The community, characteristics, and missions or apostolic work, of religious orders are distinct to that order. Features of religious orders have changed through time following updates to Canon Law and the Second Vatican Council. A religious order may include nuns, brothers, friars, or priests.
