WHERE DID THE NAME COME FROM?
The name of the group comes from its devotion to the seven Archangels and its status as an organization of clearing heresies granted it the suffix "ati" to mock the anti-Catholic organization of the 1700s, the Illuminati.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND?
The Archangelati has been active since December 3, 2010. It was started on the feast day of the famous Jesuit evangelist St. Francis Xavier who is known for converting many to the Catholic faith.

CAN I JOIN IF I AM NOT CATHOLIC?
Though we appreciate your interest in the Archangelati, we cannot allow non-Catholics or Catholics that do not uphold all of the teachings of the Pope simply because it woud create a conflict of interests in the group's major goals of evangelism, apologetics, education, and prayer all of which are Catholic-oriented.
WHAT COUNTRY ARE YOU IN?
Because we operate primarily online, it is easier for us to break regional barriers. The group found its beginning in the USA but we have grown tremendously since that time. We quickly became an international group with a few of our most active members in the U.K. -Members have since joined from countries including Canada, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, France, Poland, Turkey, Brazil, and Croatia to name a few. NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE FROM- OR WHAT YOUR TALENTS ARE- WE'D LOVE TO HAVE YOU JOIN US!
WHAT IS SEDEVACANTISM?
Sedevacantism was one of the first issues that the Archangelati came into contact with, internally that is. Sedevacantism is an anti-Catholic belief that the last several popes (the number varies) are not true popes due to their teachings being believed to be false and, in most cases, too modern. Most sedevacantists follow no Church leader though some have banded together and created a Pope of their own. The Archangelati accidentally accepted several of these into the group under the assumption that they were true Roman Catholics in communion with the Vatican but was led so falsely. Because of this and other similar problems, the new regulations for joining had to be established for the safety of the organization.
