Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter – now in Los Angeles

The following comes from a posting on Rorate Caeli on July 18. 

The largest diocese in the United States, and one of the largest in
the world, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, is about to officially
receive and welcome the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP),
Rorate can confirm. Rumors of this huge step for Tradition in America
had been circulating in the past few weeks, but at last we are able to
bring this piece of news to the general public.

Archbishop José Horacio Gómez receives our gratitude for warmly
welcoming an institute dedicated exclusively to the Traditional Mass to
the Archdiocese, the FSSP. The little pueblo of Nuestra Señora de los
Ángeles de la Porciúncula was founded under the aegis of the Traditional
Mass by settlers sent by Blessed Junípero Serra, so it is fitting and
proper that the Mass of Father Serra be daily celebrated in a setting
dedicated exclusively to it in the Archdiocese.

We are also informed that the FSSP will need to eventually purchase
or build a church in the city: at first, they are looking at either the
Downtown or Hollywood area. Fr. James Fryar, who will start this
apostolate (misión, we should rather say!), will be permanently in the
city beginning in August.

For future updates and information, keep an eye on the (still mostly
empty, of course) new website of the FSSP Apostolate in Los Angeles: FSSP.LA
