Society of Saint Pius X: 23 Priests Will Be Ordained This Summer

The priestly ordinations of the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) for the northern hemisphere will take place on June, 29, 2017 in Ecône (Switzerland), July 1st in Zaitzkofen (Germany) and July 2 in Dillwyn (United States).

On June 29, 2017, at the seminary Saint Pius X of Ecône (Switzerland), Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta will ordain 12 new priests for the Society: eleven French and one Spaniard.

On July 1, 2017, at the Seminary of the Sacred Heart in Zaitzkofen(Germany), Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais will ordain two new priests for the Society of St. Pius X: a German and a Czech.
 
On July 7, 2017, on the feast of Sts. Cyril and Methodius, and first Friday of the month, at the seminary of St. Thomas Aquinas in Dyllwin (United States), Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society, will ordain nine new priests, all Americans.
 
In total, 23 new priests will be ordained this summer for the SSPX.

Founded in 1970 by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the purpose of the Society is the priesthood and all that pertains to it and nothing but what concerns it; i.e., the priesthood as Our Lord Jesus Christ willed it when He said, “Do this for a commemoration of me.”

Six international seminaries, established in Switzerland, Germany, the United States, France, Argentina, and Australia, form the aspirants to the priesthood. Ecclesiastical studies aim at giving a sufficient knowledge of theology and doctrine and at the same time instill a profound piety, oriented towards the liturgy of the Holy Mass, which is the heart of theology, of pastoral activity, and of the Church’s life.

And now for the breakaway communities:
