Confraternity of Saint Peter Presentation
The example of Our Lord.
“Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and illness. At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is abundant but the labourers
are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out labourers for his harvest.” (Mt 9, 35-38)
What is the Confraternity of Saint Peter?
It is a society which gathers those who feel close to the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter and who wish to support its charism through prayers and sacrifices.
Thus the Confraternity contributes to the service of the Church, through supporting numerous vocations, the sanctification of priests and their pastoral endeavours.
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;
- every year: 3) have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered once for these intentions.
What spiritual benefit do members receive from the Confraternity?
Their commitments place the members among our most faithful benefactors, and as such, among the particular recipients of our priests’ and seminarians’ daily prayers.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered each month for the members of the Confraternity in each area. Recollections and instructions in the faith are also foreseen.
How does one become a member?

2. The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter will send to you in return the certificate of membership. The commitments take effect with the reception of the certificate.

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.

Prayer for Priests, to be said by members of the Confraternity of St. Peter.
Following a decade of the Rosary:
V. Remember, O Lord, Thy congregation.
R. Which Thou hast possessed from the beginning.
Post decadem Rosarii dicant:
V. Memento, Domine, congregationis tuæ.
R. Quam possedisti ab initio.
Let us pray.
O Lord Jesus, born to give testimony to the Truth, Thou who lovest unto the end those whom Thou hast chosen, kindly hear our prayers for our pastors.
Thou who knowest all things, knowest that they love Thee and can do all things in Thee who strengthenest them.
Sanctify them in Truth. Pour into them, we beseech Thee, the Spirit whom Thou didst give to Thy apostles, who would make them, in all things, like unto Thee.
Receive the homage of love which they offer
up to Thee, who hast graciously received the threefold confession of Peter.
And so that a pure oblation may everywhere be offered without ceasing unto the Most Holy Trinity, graciously enrich their number and keep them in Thy love, who art one with the Father and the Holy Ghost, to whom be glory and honour forever.
Domine Jesu, in testimonium Veritatis natus, qui usque in finem diligis quos
elegeris, exaudi benigne preces nostras pro nostris pastoribus.
Tu qui omnia
nosti, scis quia amant Te et omnia possunt in Te qui eos confortas :
sanctifica eos in Veritate, infunde in eis, quæsumus, Spiritum quem
Apostolis tuis dedisti, qui eos in omnibus Tui similes efficiat.
Tibi tribuunt testimonium amoris, qui triplici Petri confessioni benignus
Et ut oblatio munda sine intermissione Sanctissimæ Trinitati
ubique offeratur, novam eis propitius adjunge prolem, et omnes jugiter in
Tua serva caritate, qui cum Patre et eodem Spiritu Sancto unus es Deus, cui
gloria et honor in sæcula.
