The main goal of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X is to preserve the Catholic Faith in its fullness and purity, to teach its truths, and to diffuse its virtues, especially through the Roman Catholic priesthood. Authentic spiritual life, the sacraments, and the traditional liturgy are its primary means of bringing this life of grace to souls.
The spirit of the SSPX is missionary; it reaches out across the world—through its priests, religious, and a growing number of families, young people, and all its faithful—to establish and maintain true and lasting devotion to the Catholic Faith. The SSPX thus desires, prays, and works for the salvation of all, trusting that this is possible with God’s help.
The SSPX firmly believes that the Catholic Faith changes individual lives as well as society; that the Faith promotes order, justice, culture, and peace; that it offers real and lasting happiness. Despite the widespread unbelief rampant throughout the world today, the SSPX, through the priesthood, continues to unfold and distribute the treasures of Catholic Tradition. This courageous and unrestrained gift of self for the glory of God and the good of souls constitutes the core value and motivation of the SSPX.
