Join the Missive in Italy!

Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini

In six days’ time, the FSSP’s 30th anniversary pilgrimage to Rome commences! But if you can’t make it to Italy with us this year, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. The Missive will be there, posting from the road, so just tune in to follow the trip every step of the way. From Monday, October 15th through Wednesday, October 24th, the Missive will be dedicated exclusively to the pilgrimage, featuring pictures, videos, reflections and reports from our travels.

The troop of pilgrims, composed of members and friends of the Confraternity of St. Peter, will be led by FSSP Director of Development Fr. Zachary Akers and accompanied by North American Superior Fr. Michael Stinson. We will travel to Rome for the Fraternity’s October 18th anniversary, on which we will attend a Solemn High Mass of thanksgiving celebrated by our Superior General, Fr. Andrzej Komorowski, at Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, our parish in Rome. We will also offer Mass at the tomb of St. Peter for all the friends and supporters of the FSSP. From there we will continue on to many other destinations in central and southern Italy over the course of the ten-day journey, including Pompeii, Naples, the shrine of Padre Pio at San Giovanni Rotondo and that of St. Michael at Monte Sant’Angelo.

Please send us your intentions to take with us as we travel to these holy sites at We will place them near the altar at each Mass.
