Watch a video featuring the angelic voices of the SSPX's sisters and views of their newly-consecrated church.

On Saturday, December 5th, Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta consecrated a new church in Pilar, Argentina. In this suburb of Buenos Aires, the Sisters of the Society of St. Pius X have their novitiate for Spanish-speaking vocations.

Founded in 1974 by Archbishop Lefebvre and his sister, Mother Mary Gabriel, the congregation counts nearly 170 professed sisters divided amongst 25 houses and 4 novitiates.

The life of the sisters of the Society St. Pius X is very similar to the example given us by the holy women in the Gospels. Their vocation makes them "helpers of the priesthood". Archbishop Lefebvre did not hesitate to use this very expression to describe the sisters own apostolic end.

The sisters will be helpers of the priesthood in the various apostolic works confided to our priests."
