About the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP):
The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter was founded in July 1988 by 12 priests of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), and several seminarians. The founders left the SSPX to establish the FSSP after the society’s leader, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, consecrated four bishops without the permission of St. John Paul II.
Its founding was under the auspices of St. John Paul II’s 1988 motu proprio Ecclesia Dei, which set up a pontifical commission to facilitate the “full ecclesial communion of priests, seminarians, religious communities or individuals” who had been linked to the SSPX and “who may wish to remain united to the Successor of Peter in the Catholic Church, while preserving their spiritual and liturgical traditions.”
The Mass, the Divine Office and the Sacraments are offered according to the Latin liturgical books of 1962. Their name denotes their thanksgiving, filial love, and loyalty to the supreme Pontiff. The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter has close to three hundred priests serving in over one hundred dioceses throughout the world with international headquarters in Fribourg, Switzerland.
