Fraternity priests offer the traditional Latin Mass daily (Roman Missal of 1962), and provide wide-ranging pastoral care for the faithful centred upon the traditional prayers and sacramental forms loved by Saints and so highly prized by the Church.

The Fraternity is a Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right, founded in 1988 with the approval of Pope Saint John Paul II. At present the Fraternity has two major seminaries, and our own Australian Ezechiel House Novitiate, housing more than 120 seminarians, with 200 priests working in a dozen countries.

The Fraternity came to Australia in March 2000 and has so far been invited by the bishops to work in their dioceses of: Sydney, Parramatta, Canberra and Adelaide.
