Sodality

Sodality

[soh-dal-i-tee, suh-]

In Christian theology, a sodality is a form of the Church universal expressed in specialized, task oriented form as opposed to the Church in its local, diocesan form (which is termed modality). In North America, the name sodality is most commonly used by groups in the Roman Catholic Church, where they are also referred to as confraternities. See Sodality (Catholic Church). Sodalities are expressed among Protestants through the multitude of mission organizations, societies, and specialized ministries that have proliferated particularly since the advent of the modern missions movement, usually attributed to Englishman William Carey in 1792.
