The Priestly Fraternity
of Saint Peter

Welcome to the new FSSP.com! Looking for something? Questions?

Using the ancient liturgy as our well-spring, we form our priests in the traditions of the Church to serve at the altar and in the parish so that the fullness of Christ might enter the emptiness of the world.

Find Us

We are active in 37 dioceses in the United States and 7 in Canada. We have over 93 priests working in 48 apostolates. Find out where we are.

“It came forth out of the grand mind of the Church, and lifted us out
 of earth and out of self, and wrapped us round in a cloud of mystical sweetness and the sublimities of a more than angelic liturgy, and purified us almost without ourselves, and charmed us with the celestial charming, so that our very senses seemed to find vision, hearing, fragrance, taste, and touch beyond what earth can give.”

Reflections

Reflect

Among those totally dedicated to the service of the Church’s mission are our priests, who are called to preach the Gospel to all souls they meet, many of whom have still not had a real encounter with Jesus Christ. These priests, these men who stand “in persona Christi”, offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, administer the sacraments, pass on the traditions of the Church, and help those in need of temporal and spiritual care.

Act

Before a man can give himself to God’s people, he must first give himself completely to God. Therefore, unlike many other religious institutions, we prefer to form our men away from the distractions of modern life so that they might better contemplate the divine mysteries.

Pray

Lord Jesus, High Priest and universal Shepherd, Thou hast taught us to pray, saying: “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest” [Matthew 9:38].
