In 1988, Pope St. John Paul II established the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) as a Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical Right and approved its constitutions. The Fraternity was founded for the formation and sanctification of priests in accordance with the Traditional Latin rites and for their deployment in the service of the Church. It offers the sacred liturgy and sacraments exclusively according to the liturgical books of 1962 for those faithful who are attracted to the beauty and solemnity of the Traditional Latin Mass and sacraments. The Fraternity also has a specific mission of bringing into union with the Church those who are seeking the ancient form of the Mass and sacraments outside the Church (Motu Proprio Ecclesia Dei, July 1988). The Fraternity functions under the auspices of, and in complete union with, His Holiness Pope Francis I, and the Ordinary of the dioceses in which they serve.
The FSSP has over 260 priests serving in dioceses around the world and two international seminaries, one of which is located in Lincoln, Nebraska.
