ROSAS SALAS, Sergio Francisco. Puebla's Catholic Circle, 1887-1900. Estud. hist. mod. contemp. Mex [online]. 2012, n.43, pp.35-67. ISSN 0185-2620.

This article analyzes the formation and the early years of Puebla's Catholic Circle, a confessional organization composed of secular persons on a clerical initiative. It draws attention to the actions of a number of Catholics in the city of Puebla under the Porfiriato's conciliation policy between 1887 and 1900, and the ways in which they used it to their advantage, shifting from the public practice of Catholicism to a lay ministry.

Keywords : Catholic Circle; Puebla; Porfiriato; conciliation policy; lay ministry; the Catholic Church; secular organizations.
