FSSP 25th Anniversary Pontifical Mass in San Diego

The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter commemorated the twenty-fifth anniversary of its foundation with special Masses and celebrations throughout the world.  In all of the events, the priests of the Fraternity gave thanks for the favors and gifts received by God through the patronage of Saint Peter and the Blessed Virgin Mary, and gave thanks for the multitude of supporters who have lent their time and talent to the growth of the Fraternity.

The priests of the North American District gathered in San Diego to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary on Friday November 15, 2013. The Pontifical Mass of thanksgiving was celebrated by Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone at the Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala.  The Mission Basilica was the first of the 21 California missions and is known as the Mother of the Missions. It was founded on July 16, 1769, by Blessed Junipero Serra.

The Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco recorded the Mass. Many thanks for their dedication to and support of Tradition, and the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter.

In your kindness, please continue to support the Fraternity in your prayers and generosity. Enjoy pictures from the Mass, courtesy of Kristen VonBerg.
