The 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:
- For the sanctification of the members of the FSSP
- For vocations to the FSSP
- 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.
