Fr. Akers celebrates Mass at the tomb of St. Peter

On October 18th, 2018, the FSSP gave thanks to God for 30 years of service and fidelity to Him and His Church. The Confraternity of St. Peter’s 30th anniversary pilgrimage to Rome is currently underway, and at 8 o’clock this morning, Fr. Zachary Akers, who is leading the pilgrimage, offered Mass at the tomb of St. Peter for the intentions of the supporters of the FSSP.

Later, pilgrims attended a Solemn High Mass of thanksgiving at Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, our parish in Rome, offered by FSSP Superior General Fr. Andrzej Komorowski with North American Superior Fr. Michael Stinson and one of our priests from France, Fr. La Croix, assisting. Fr. Komorowski and Fr. Jean-Cyrile Sow, pastor of Santissima Trinità, joined Fr. Akers, Fr. Stinson and the pilgrims for a festive dinner that evening with the sisters of St. Bridget, who run the Casa Santa Brigida where some of our pilgrims stayed.

We hit the ground running in Rome when we arrived here on Tuesday, and we will be posting more pictures soon from all the holy sites that we have been privileged to visit. Here are a few highlights – click on a photo to learn more!
