New FSSP Superior General elected, SSPX is gathered, CSJC … we shall see.

From the FSSP site:

New Superior General Elected: Fr. Andrzej Komorowski

The General Chapter of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), held from July 3rd to July 18th, 2018 at Our Lady of Guadalupe International Seminary in Denton, Nebraska, elected today in plenary session Fr. Andrzej Komorowski as Superior General for 6 years.

A Polish priest born in 1975, Fr. Andrzej Komorowski joined St. Peter’s International Seminary in Wigratzbad after studying economics at the University of Pozna? (Poland). Ordained a priest in June 2006 by H. E. Jorge Cardinal Medina Estévez, he ministered in various apostolates of the Fraternity in Poland, Belgium and the Netherlands. Elected Assistant of the Superior General at the 2012 General Chapter, he held that position at the Fraternity’s General House in Fribourg (Switzerland) whilst fulfilling the duties of General Bursar and frequently providing ministry to the faithful in French-speaking Switzerland.

As successor to Fr. John Berg, Fr. Komorowski is the 4th Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.

Meanwhile, the group from which the FSSP split, the SSPX, are having their chapter.  HERE

On the evening of July 3, the members of the General Chapter arrived at the Seminary of Econe, the birthplace of the Society of St. Pius X founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1970.

They will follow a priestly retreat to prepare them spiritually for the beginning of the Chapter on July 11.

The retreat is being preached by Fr. Emeric Baudot, currently prior of St. Nicolas du Chardonnet in Paris, and first assistant of the District of France.

Ordained a priest on September 2, 1988, by Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, Fr. Baudot served as principal of the Sainte-Marie school near Saint-Malo from 1993 to 2001, but also as bursar for the District of France (1990-1993) and General Bursar of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X for 12 years, from 2002 to 2014.

All the members of the Chapter recommend themselves to your charitable prayers.

Also, I believe that the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius in Chicago will have to choose a Superior… or have that Superior chosen for them.  HERE

    Perhaps the Chinese Consul General could provide some useful input regarding the new Superior of
    the Canons General of St. John Cantius.
