The SSPX sisters moved to Browerville, MN
in 1990, using a former Catholic hospital as their novitiate
in the United States.
In Fall 1999, construction on their new
chapel adjacent to the novitiate complex was begun, and on
November 22, the cornerstone was blessed by Bishop Williamson.
The brick chapel was built complete with bell tower and over
the front entrance, a 7-foot bas-relief of the Sacred Heart,
while inside, a marble altar was installed in a sanctuary
constructed large enough to accommodate the grandiose
ceremonies of the Roman Rite.
On September 2, 2000, the chapel was
solemnly blessed and its altar consecrated by Bishop
Williamson (cf. the January 2001 Regina Coeli
Report cited below).
The chapel is served by the SSPX priests
from St. Peter's priory, only a block away from the novitiate.
Though the chapel is primarily for the sisters, nevertheless,
the public is welcome to attend the Masses offered there
during the week and on Sundays.
