Who We Are

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) is a Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical Right, canonically erected by Pope St. John Paul II in 1988. The particular charism and mission of the FSSP is to offer the Sacred Liturgy, including the Holy Mass and the Divine Office, as well as the Sacraments, in all of their traditional solemnity, according to the Latin liturgical books of 1962.

The Fraternity’s name denotes our thanksgiving, filial love, and loyalty to the supreme Pontiff, who encourages our growth, as well as the brotherly unity in Christ that our priests strive to characterize in their lives and work. The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter has close to three hundred priests serving in over one hundred dioceses throughout the world with international headquarters in Fribourg, Switzerland.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need college experience to become a Fraternity seminarian?

L
K

College experience has many advantages, such as enhancing academic ability, learning independence, and broadening social experience. We recommend at least two years at a good college or university, but this is not strictly required. With some colleges, the academic and moral corruption encountered make them incompatible with preparing for the seminary. Please note that we cannot accept men with outstanding student loans.

How long does it take to complete the application documents?

L
K

The application documents are many; some of which you complete, some of which you compose, and others that are completed by others. It will normally take several weeks to finalize all the required documents. You are encouraged to begin the process as soon as you have made your decision to apply in order to prevent problems and delays. All of the necessary documents may be found on the Apply page under the “Documents” tab.

How much does it cost to form a seminarian?

L
K

The actual cost is about $ 30,000 per year. Most of this cost is paid through the generosity of our benefactors, who deserve our prayers every day. Currently, FSSP seminarians are asked to pay $7,000 per year for tuition, room, and board.

Are seminarians allowed to bring their own cars?
