A private lay association of the faithful dedicated to charitable works in the spirit of St Vincent de Paul, while making
reparation for sins against the poor, to be known as the Charity Associates of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, nickname
"CAMM". A goal of this organization will be the establishment of the Congregation of Charity of Our Lady of the Miraculous
Membership is open to those who support the group's objectives. Aspirants to CCMM are required to meet the entrance
criteria for religious life. All are required to be on the yahoo group. Separation from the group must be
either written or electronically mailed.
Our manner of action is through the internet via websites and listservs. Local meetings may be held if there are
two or more present in a locality. A modest, distinctive garb incorporating sapphire blue and white with a Miraculous Medal
is permitted. If members are attracted to sharing living quarters for the sake of apostolate ("beguinage"),
such is permitted. A spiritual director will be required for the beguinages.
A formation program incorporating the history of St Vincent de Paul's works, plus the saints of his congregations, to
include the Introduction to the Devout Life, will be implemented.
The center of CAMM government will be wherever the president is domiciled, unless physical headquarters are established.
Review and amendment of statutes will be held every six months for the first three years; then once yearly afterward.
