The Pallottines (Society of the Catholic Apostolate) in Australia are a male Catholic religious order of Priests and Brothers. They were established in Rome by Vincent Pallotti, which gives them the name, 'Pallottine'. The Pallotines came to Australia in 1901 to work at Beagle Bay Mission and since then have been involved with many missions in Western Australia.
