Summer and Fall are traditionally times of great change within the Society of St. Pius X, with the 100+ priests of the District receiving their yearly assignments.
The priests, brothers, and deacons tend to be nomadic in order to serve as many souls as possible. While there are many chapels which are serviced by travelling priests regularly, they all belong to a home priory. This is vital to the spiritual (and mental) well-being of our priests, since a priest living a solitary life does not receive the support of his fellow priests, and can tend to become quite set in his ways, as is natural.
For this reason, priories act as hubs from which the priests make a mass exodus on the weekends to serve the chapels in nearby areas. This allows them during the week to pray, work, consult, and recreate in common, with the faithful reaping the benefits of this spiritual strength and rejuvenation.
We are happy to publish the list of prioriesin the U.S. District, the priests' locations, and their scheduled mission assignments through Summer 2019.
