The Directory lists only the international associations of the faithful
and other ecclesial realities
formally recognized or erected by the Dicastery.
A review of all the presentation previously published in the Directory
is currently underway. This will also allow
the inclusion in the Directory of associations
that have only recently received recognition from the Holy See.
