The General Chapter
of the Society of St. Pius X opened Monday, July 9, 2012, at the
seminary of Econe (Switzerland), and will continue
until Saturday, July 14. The object of this meeting is to examine
issues that arise between the elective chapters that take place every
12 years - the next will be held in July 2018.
In the present context, following the response of Cardinal William
Levada, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, on
June 14, 2012, this chapter will permit the Superior General, Bishop
Bernard Fellay, to make known the state of relations of the Society of
St. Pius X with Rome, and obtain feedback from the capitularies on
this subject. Discussions are being conducted in a fraternal
atmosphere, marked by cordiality.
