Confraternitas Sancti Petri


The obligations of the members of the Confraternity are threefold:

  1. 1.To offer one decade of the rosary each day for  the intentions of the Confraternity,

  2. 2.To recite the prayer of the Confraternity each day and

  3. 3.To have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered once each year for the intentions of the Confraternity.

The intentions of the Confraternity are the following:

  1. 1.The sanctification of the members of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter

  2. 2.For vocations to the Fraternity and

  3. 3.For the fruitfulness of the Fraternity's apostolic labors.

The obligations as member of the Confraternity do not bind under pain of sin, but rather flow from the bonds of charity that move the members to unite themselves to the work of the Fraternity of St Peter. Nevertheless every effort should be made to remain faithful to these prayers that you have promised to say, and to renew the intention to remain faithful to these obligations from time to time.
