In religious organizations, the '''laity''' comprises all '''lay persons ''' collectively. This can mean either any person who is not a member of the [[clergy ]] or of any [[monastic ]] order or, within such an order, a monastic who is not a [[priest (c.f., lay brother). In recent centuries, the term is often used more generally, in the context of any specialized profession, to refer to those who are not members of that profession]]==See also==*[[Ordination]]*[[Major orders]]*[[Minor orders]] ==Source==*[[Wikipedia:Laity|''Laity'' at Wikipedia]] [[Category:Church Life]]
