The origins of The Union of Catholic Apostolate back to January 9, 1835, when, by divine inspiration, St. Vincent Pallotti decided to found a work in which all members of God's people together to participate in the evangelising mission of the Church . St. Vincent Pallotti was seized by the idea that all the baptized, in response to the new commandment of love (Jn.15, verses 12 to 15), are called to be actively engaged for the salvation of others as much as their own, and also the personal apostolic initiatives are most effective if carried out jointly and aimed at the business of living and spreading the gospel together.

"

Looking ahead, the Pope said at the time: "follow multiplying your commitment to what Vincent Pallotti prophetically announced and the Second Vatican Council authoritatively confirmed, becomes happy reality, and all Christians to be true apostles of Christ in the Church and the world "(Teachings of John Paul II, 9/1 [1986], p. 1899).
The Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, as well as the post-conciliar Magisterium, gave special attention to the forms of joint participation in the life of the Church, expressing his deep consideration about (cf. Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity Apostolicam Actuositatem, 18 , 19 and 21 post-synodal apostolic exhortation Christifideles laici, 29).
Similarly, early in the new millennium John Paul II has written that is of great importance to "promote the various realities joint, which forms both traditional and newer ecclesial movements, continue to give the Church a vitality that is God's gift and is a real springtime of the Spirit. (Apostolic Letter Novo Millennio Ineunte, 46).
