DO YOU KNOW… the difference between a ministry and an apostolate?

“Ministry pertains to the administration of a Sacrament, celebration of liturgy and other liturgical rites and is specific to those with Holy Orders.

“Laity spread the Gospel of Jesus and the truth of Catholicism in the secular world through whatever means they can – this is properly called an apostolate. The St. Vincent de Paul Society or the Knights of Columbus are excellent examples.”
