The Priestly Fraternity of St Peter
The priestly Fraternity of St Peter, or FSSP as many people know it, has updated its membership figures. They are broken down as follows:
Other Seminarians 144
The average of their membership is 37, a figure that has stayed the same for several years, so we can be assured that fraternity will survive for many decades to come.

With a good number of seminarians joining the two seminaries each year, the fraternity is experiencing steady growth.
