The CORPORATION SOLE

The RELIGIOUS ORDER


Its History and Use


There are many forms of corporation, both business and ecclesiastical. Sometimes a mix of both is necessary to achieve the results that one seeks.

Some have chosen the Religious Order as a way of life. Undoubtedly its appeal is limited, but there are occasions when its use can be advantageous. If you have a specific purpose in life, not necessarily in a spiritual ministry, which would benefit by the concentration of funds in an Order, it might be worthwhile considering.

Governmental control bodies, responsible for the registration of such orders, insist on the term "religious order", whereas many modern organisations prefer the term "spiritual" rather than religious.

Here is a brief history of its use, hints on how to conduct operations today, and sample documentation together with the important wording for these documents, from real Religious Orders.

If you would like a Religious Order drafted for you, we should be glad to do so for a small fee - the charge is $500 US. Write to Mission St Michael for further information.
