CMIS - Conférence Mondiale des Instituts Séculiers

Roma, IT

CMIS (Conférence Mondiale des Instituts Séculiers) was founded in 1972 and received approval from the Holy See in 1974. Its goal is to organize collaboration among Secular Institutes so they can become, in the most effective way possible, a "leaven in the world for the strengthening and growth of the body of Christ," that is, the Church (Perfectae Caritatis, 11). In this way, CMIS can help each Institute better achieve its own end.
