Three years after the last General Chapter in July 2018, Fr. Andrzej Komorowski, Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, has decided, with the agreement of his General Council:

– to reappoint Fr. Vincent Ribeton as Rector of the Seminary of St. Peter in Wigratzbad for three years;
– to reappoint Fr. Joseph Bisig as Rector of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, USA for three years.
Furthermore, in accordance with the directives of the 2012 General Chapter and in conformity with the Constitutions of the FSSP, the Superior General, with the agreement of his General Council, has decided to erect the current Southern Cross Region (Australia and New Zealand) into a District as of July 1, 2021, and to appoint Fr. Michael McCaffrey as Superior of this new District.
As a reminder, following the decision of the 2018 General Chapter, the North American District (USA and Canada) will also be erected into a North American Province on July 1. By decision of the Superior General, after consultation with the members of the future Province and agreement of the General Council, Fr. William Lawrence, Councilor, will be named the first Provincial. The Provincial Chapter will be held in early July in the United States.
On behalf of all the members of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, the Superior General and his Council would like to express their great thanks to Fr. Bernhard Gerstle, Superior of the German-speaking District since 2015, as well as to Fr. Michael Stinson, Superior of the North American District since 2018, for their diligent work in the service of the common good during their tenure as superiors. They also thank the above mentioned members who have accepted to serve the FSSP and assure them of their prayers.
