We are working on a way to register for the Sunday masses on this website that will begin with Trinity Sunday on June 7th. This is so as to minimize the unwanted outcome of having some faithful being left out of the church. What we will probably do is split all the faithful in 2 groups. 1st group will comprise of all those whose last name begins with the letters A to M. The second group will be those whose last name starts with the letters N to Z. The first group will then sign up online to attend one of the 3 masses on Sunday (2 will be at Assumption and 1 at St. Edmund's). On the Saturday before, if there are any open spots, then those from the other group will be able to sign up. This order will be reversed on the following Sunday, where group 2 will be able to sign up, and if there are any open spots, then those in group 1 will be able to sign up but only on the Saturday preceding that Sunday.

Mass times will probably be 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm at Assumption and 3:30pm at St. Edmund's. These times are tentative and might change. All masses will be low masses without distribution of communion.

Week-day masses will probably be first come first served. I don't foresee more that 50 people attending as our week-day mass attendance before this situation was about 20.

We have had some problems with the donation button on this website. Hopefully we will resolve this soon. In the meantime you can continue sending your donations by mail, or giving it to Fr. Botta

confraternityThe Confraternity of St Peter is a sodality of members who wish to unite themselves to the Priesty Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) and aid in the work of the FSSP, primarily by their prayers. 

The Confraternity of St. Peter spreads throughout the world, and is divided into three regions: The English-Speaking Region, the French-Speaking Region and the German-Speaking Region. 

Members of the Confraternity of St. Peter (CSP) pray a decade of the Rosary and the Confraternity Prayer each day for the intentions of the CSP. 

The intentions of the CSP are three:

  1. For the sanctification of the members of the FSSP
  2. For vocations to the FSSP
  3. And for the work of the FSSP throughout the world.

What does a member of the Confraternity of Saint Peter do?Members commit themselves to
Every day:    1) pray one decade of the holy rosary for the sanctification of our priests and for our priestly vocations,
                     2) and recite the Prayer of the Confraternity (see below),
Every year:   3) have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered once for these intentions.

How does one become a member?

  1. Request the Enrollment Form from the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter and send it back to us when filled out.
    1. ​Visit the new FSSP website to enroll online at: FSSP

  4. Membership is purely spiritual and does not confer any rights or duties other than the spiritual support in prayer and charity in accord with the commitments described above.
  5. By themselves the commitments do not bind under penalty of sin.
  6. Membership and the commitments which follow it are tacitly renewed each year on the feast of the Chair of Saint Peter (February 22), unless expressly determined otherwise.
