THE PRIESTLY FRATERNITY
OF ST PETER
DISTRICT OF OCEANIA
"Thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail agains it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven."
It is with sorrow that the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter learned of the death of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI who was on several occasions a providential support for our community ...
The priests of the Fraternity, together with the faithful who are close to it, will be ardently praying for the repose of his soul. Requiem Masses with the absolution will be celebrated in the apostolates entrusted to the Fraternity.

On Saturday, November 5th, the FSSP Parramatta apostolate hosted a successful fundraising dinner. Donations on the evening and immediately prior to the dinner raised $115,000, with many pledges for ongoing donations.
The community hopes to purchase a plot of land in Western Sydney some time next year on which a future church and facilities will be built.

We give thanks to Almighty God, and congratulate Fr Noel Soares FSSP on his recent ordination to the Sacred Priesthood on 27 May.
Fr Soares is originally from Goa, India and was ordained with 6 confreres from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary at the North American Martyrs Church in Lincoln, Nebraska. His Grace, Thomas Gullickson (Papal Nuncio Emeritus) was the ordinating prelate.
