The Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities and Fellowships is an international private association of members of the faithful having juridical personality in accordance with
Canon 322 of the Code of Canon Law.
The Fraternity recognizes its membership of the communion of the Catholic Church and its structure in accordance with Canons 298-300, 304-311, and 321-329. It is the desire of the Fraternity to identify itself with the salvific mission of the whole Church in communion with the local bishop and with the Roman Pontiff.
The principal means by which the Fraternity expresses its relationship with the Roman Pontiff is through a formal link with the Pontifical Council for the Laity.
The strengthening of ties between the Fraternity and the Holy See gives additional clarity to the Catholic identity of the Fraternity.
