FSSP XXth Anniversary Pilgrimage

On October 18, 2008 the Fraternity will celebrate in Rome the twentieth anniversary of its canonical erection.  All the members and faithful are cordially invited to partake in this anniversary, either through prayer or if possible by attending, according to their pastoral and academic availability. 

Several groups have already formed in various countries. Further additions and precisions (e. g. location for Masses and meals) will be communicated to you in due course.

Already now however, the elements below offer a concrete schedule for those able to plan this pilgrimage to Rome.  It is understood that Americans are much less likely to attend in large numbers, due to the distance and time and costs involved.

Still, since many of the faithful do travel to Rome every year on pilgrimages, it would seem most fitting to seize this opportunity of the XXth anniversary, obviously spending longer time than only a week-end in Rome or Italy.
