At the time of Pallotti there were 54 parishes in Rome. St. Vincent Pallotti was never directly involved in Parish pastoral works. His activity as Rector of the Church of Spirito Santo dai Napoletani and, late, of San Salvatore in Onda embraced rather the entire city. In the General Archives are to be found 32 positive written opinions of Roman parish priests approving the works of the Catholic Apostolate of Pallotti. For Christian life, parishes have always had a role similar to that in our times. They were always the places where the faithful could come to know the message of the Gospel, receive sacraments and experience the communion of the Church. The novelty of the Pallottine charism consisted in its strong emphasis that all the baptised were responsible for the apostolate. Presently Pallottine priests and brothers are involved in pastoral work in nearly 400 parishes. Prabhu Prakash Province aids the Indian Church by taking care of 20 Parishes.
