Apostolic Union of Clergy (AUC)
It is an association of diocesan ordained ministers (bishops, presbyters and deacons) engaged in helping one another in acquiring the personal sanctification for an efficient exercise of their ministry (Cf. Statutes AUC, 1).
We help one another to live in fraternal communion our diocesan spirituality proper to the diocesan clergy. With our services we help the ordained ministers, especially in our diocesan presbytery. It is an association meant to help and to be helped.

It is being organized as per the associative form promoted by the universal Church (Cf. PO, 8 and CIC can. 278) and has its new Statutes approved by the Congregation for the Clergy in 1998.
