           รายชื่อของคณะนักบวชและประชาคมนักบวช มีมากมายทั้งในประเทศและในต่างประเทศ
เราปรารถนาที่จะทำให้รายชื่อสมบูรณ์ เพื่อรวบรวมประชาคมที่มีความซื่อสัตย์ต่ออำนาจการสั่งสอนของพระศาสนจักรคาทอลิกและซื่อสัตย์ต่อพระพรพิเศษของผู้ก่อตั้งคณะ
สำหรับคณะนักบวชที่อยู่ในต่างประเทศ มีนโยบายทั่วไปที่พร้อมจะยอมรับกระแสเรียกที่อายุมาก หรือเป็นที่รู้จักที่จะทำบ่อยขึ้น)

ถ้าสนใจสมัครเข้าคณะใด ขอให้คุณติดต่อกับคณะนั้นๆโดยตรง  โดยพิมพ์ชื่อ
Catholic Religious Orders for Women (หญิง)
Catholic Religious Orders for Men (ชาย)
แล้วพิมพ์ชื่อคณะที่คุณสนใจสมัคร
ถ้าคุณสนใจอ่านหนังสือเกี่ยวกับคณะนักบวชต่างๆ ให้พิมพ์ “Books on Religious Orders and Religious Life”
           
   ข้อความต่อไปนี้ เป็นคำตอบผู้ที่ถามมาทางกระดาน (blog) ในวันที่ 16 ตุลาคม 2013/2556
“การเรียกไปสู่ความศักดิ์สิทธิ์อาจจะหรือไม่ใช่การดำเนินชีวิตเป็นพระสงฆ์หรือนักบวชหญิง. หนุ่มสาวต้องการเห็นผู้คนในวิถีชีวิตต่างๆ
-การสวดภาวนาในที่สาธารณะ เช่น สวดสายประคำ (บางที นอกคลินิคทำแท้ง,หรือขณะเข้าคิวที่ร้านสะดวกซื้อหรือห้างสรรพสินค้า สถานีรถไฟฟ้า ฯลฯป
-การถือสายประคำขณะเดินในสวนสาธารณะ กำลังพูดคุยเกี่ยวกับบทเทศน์ขณะที่รับประทานอาหารเย็นในร้านอาหาร   ถกปัญหาพระคัมภีร์ประจำสัปดาห์หรือแลกเปลี่ยนความคิดเห็นเกี่ยวกับบทอ่านในพิธีมิสซาขอบพระคุณประจำสัปดาห์ บทสดุดีที่ร้านอาหาร  ที่โรงเรียน ที่ร้านอาหารจานด่วน ร้านจำหน่ายเครื่องดื่ม ศูนย์การเรียนรู้ ฯลฯ  หรือสวดภาวนาก่อนและหลังรับประทานอาหาร)
                  เราได้รับเรียกให้เทศน์สอน “พระวรสาร” นั่นคือหน้าที่แรกและความรับผิดชอบไม่ว่าเราเป็นพระสงฆ์ นักบวช หรือฆราวาส. ถ้าไม่ใช่การเลือกที่จะเข้าอารามหรือบ้านเณรตามอายุ.  บางที เป็นไปได้ที่จะทำงานในบ้านเณร อารามนักบวช เขตวัดหรือสำนักงานของสังฆมณฑล ด้วยการช่วยเหลือคนอื่นให้วิเคราะห์แยกแยะกระแสเรียกของพวกเขาให้รับใช้องค์พระผู้เป็นเจ้า ด้วยการเป็นอาสาสมัครที่คลินิคคลอดบุตร โรงพยาบาลรัฐบาลฯลฯ. เป็นนักแปลที่ศาลสำหรับคนต่างชาติที่ยากจน หรือเพียงทำให้เกิดการเปลี่ยนแปลงในที่ทำงาน (การสวดสายประคำพระแม่มารีย์ สายประคำพระเมตตา ก่อนออกจากบ้าน หรือสวดภาวนาในวัดน้อยแทนที่จะเป็นแค่ชั่วโมงศักดิ์สิทธิ์เท่านั้น และเชิญชวนคนอื่นให้สวดภาวนากับคุณหรือชวนคนอื่นไปร่วมพิธีมิสซาขอบพระคุณในวันอาทิตย์
             เนื่องจากปีนี้เป็นปีแห่งนักบวช (2014-2015)  หาวันที่จะอดอาหาร สวดภาวนาและไตร่ตรองก่อนรับศีลอภัยบาปและร่วมพิธีมิสซาขอบพระคุณดีไหม
                พันธกิจหลายอย่างต้องการความช่วยเหลือจากผู้ให้คำแนะนำฝ่ายจิตเพื่อหญิงชาย, สังฆานุกรต้องการความช่วยเหลือจากผู้ให้คำแนะนำด้านกระแสเรียก เขตวัดและอารามก็ต้องการความช่วยเหลือ.
มีคณะนักบวชชายหญิงเล็กๆที่ไม่มีแหล่งการเงินเพื่อประชาสัมพันธ์ซึ่งเป็นเรื่องสำคัญที่ต้องใช้ความสร้างสรรค์และความฉลาด.
        ก็ติดต่อกับหนังสือพิมพ์คาทอลิกท้องถิ่น. ศึกษาทุกคณะ ติดต่อทุกสังฆมณฑลที่อยู่ไม่เกินรัศมี 1600 กิโลเมตร และผู้สนใจคณะนักบวชเหล่านี้จะได้ข้อมูลเพิ่มเติม.
         นักบุญเปาโลออกไปเทศน์สอน ท่านไม่มีชื่อทางการ. เพียงเพราะประตูต้อนรับคนเข้าบ้านเณรหรืออารามนักบวชปิด ไม่ได้หมายความว่า ปิดฉาก. จงจำไว้ว่า จงภาวนาโดยไม่หยุดหย่อน. บางที คณะนักบวชต้องการคำภาวนา. ต้องใช้วเลาหลายสิบปีวอนขอบรรดานักบุญและนักปราชญ์ของพระศาสนจักรเพื่อรับคำตอบ.

      จงจำไว้ว่า จงเพียรทนเพื่อพระเจ้า เพื่อตัวเองและคนอื่น เป็นก้าวแรกเพื่อให้และรับความรัก.
