The SSPX Has Doubled Itself in 20 Years - 569 Priests

(Menzigen)  The Society of St. Pius X finds itself in a decisive turning point in their history.  While the reconciliation talks with the Holy See finds itself at a standstill, the Society's General Chapter has been held since the 8th of July in Econe. From the start it is important to take a look at the development of the personnel of the Society since its founding in 1970.

As the General house imparted at the beginning of July through its information service DICI, the Society, which has lacked ecclesial recognition since 1975, today has 569 priests.  In the last 20 years the number of priests has doubled.

In June 18 priests were ordained in the northern hemisphere.  Bishop Tissier de Mallerais ordained six priests in Winona in the USA, Bishop Fellay on June 29th 10 new priests in Econe in Switzerland and Bishop de Galerreta on the 1st of July two priests in Zaitzkofen in Germany.
