Biblical Apologetics (Fr. Bauknecht) 10 week duration for age groups (14-18)
The English word “apology” comes from a Greek word which basically means “to give a defense.” Biblical apologetics, then, is the science of giving a defense of the Christian faith using scripture. There are many skeptics who doubt the existence of God and/or attack belief in the God of the Bible. There are many critics who attack the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible. There are many false teachers who promote false doctrines and deny the key truths of the Catholic faith. The mission of an apologist is to combat these movements and promote the Catholic faith.
There is no fee for this class
Bible Story Time 10 week duration for ages (5-7)
An opportunity to hear, draw and color some of your favorite bible stories read by a variety of different readers.
There is no fee for this class.
Catechism 1 (Fr. Harkins) 10 week duration for age groups (Post First Communion 7-9)
The Baltimore Catechism is a course designed to establish the core foundations of the Catholic Faith through the memorization of the Baltimore Catechism. Memorizing the questions and answers of the catechism provides the opportunity to build a religious foundation. This basic Catholic doctrinal foundation gives students the tools necessary to defend their faith when they are old enough to apply reason and logic (much like memorizing the alphabet before learning to read and analyze literature).
There is no fee for this class
Catechism 2 (Fr. Bauknecht) 10 week duration for age groups (Pre Confirmation 9-14)
The Catholic Faith is enormous. it cannot be comprehended at a single glance. It must be studied with prayerful patience – over time – before the picture of it becomes clear to one’s mind. “This is the Faith” perhaps is the best picture in words of the Catholic Faith for popular reading. Therefore using Canon Ripley’s “This is the Faith”, this class will concentrate on the chapters concerning the Commandments of God.
There is no fee for this class
Catechism 3 (Fr. Brenna) 10 week duration for age groups (Post Confirmation 14-18)
Again using “This is the Faith” this class will examine the Sacramental system, the Reformation and Catholic social principles.
There is no fee for this class
Gregorian Chant (Mr. Poole) 8 week duration for age groups (9-14 & 14-18)
There is a fee of $65/student for this course.
Gregorian Chant is the music par excellence of the Latin Rite and is integral to the celebration of our liturgies. The best way to understand it, appreciate it, and pray with it, is to learn it. This course includes an overview of the history of chant, its theory, and listening to recordings, but the primary purpose is to learn to sing chant. This will involve regular practice of good tonal production, memorization of tone-patterns and modes, and the gradual assimilation of “Gregorian style”. Furthermore, students will begin to learn a repertory of traditional Gregorian hymns, antiphons, etc., as well as some ordinary settings for the Mass.
Materials provided. Cost $65 per student. Minimum Class size 10. Payment of tuition fees are made directly to the instructor. No students will be turned away from learning due to inability to pay. Please speak with Mr. Poole if you have tuition concerns.
Henle Latin Continued. (Fr. Brenna) 10 week duration for age groups (9-14)
There is a fee of $30/new student for this course. If you already have a copy of the text the cost is $10.
Time-tested and teacher endorsed, this comprehensive program is designed to lead the student systematically through the fundamentals of the language itself and on to an appreciation of selected classic texts. Thorough mastery of forms, basic syntax, and simple vocabulary are primary objectives of Henle First Year Latin that enable students to handle simple readings and translations. In a weekly classes over two semesters, it will take two academic years to learn the material in Henle’s First Year course which is on par with other programs such as Seton. The lessons frequently refer to the Traditional Mass and the lives of the Saints, in addition to the literature of ancient Roman figures.
Materials provided. Cost $30 per new student. $10 for returning students. Minimum Class size 10 per age group. Payment of material costs are made directly to the instructor.
Performance 101 (Fr. Harkins & Miss Ratelle) 10 week duration for age groups (9-14 & 14-18)
After the heavy intellectual work of Catechism and Theology this course will lighten the load as students come face to face with “Haggis”. Students of this course will memorize and recite a range of poetry and songs in the build up to major parish events e.g. The Burns Supper and the Festival of Tables.
Children’s Choir (Mr. McMahon & Miss Ratelle) 10 week duration for age group (9-14)
The Children’s choir offers a challenging choral program for boys and girls ages 9 to 14. This course is an integral asset to the training of all young singers in the parish. Each choral session includes general musicianship, sight-reading, vocal technique. Boys and girls will have the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful communal aspects of choral singing while exploring a wide range of liturgical music building up a sacred music repertoire for use in the Sunday liturgy.

Mission of the Fraternity
The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (Fraternitas Sacerdotalis Sancti Petri in Latin) is a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right, that is, a community of Roman Catholic priests who do not take religious vows, but who work together for a common mission in the world. The mission of the Fraternity is two-fold: first, the formation and sanctification of priests in the cadre of the traditional liturgy of the Roman rite, and secondly, the pastoral deployment of the priests in the service of the Church.
The spiritual formation of the priests in the Fraternity is based in the Sacred Tradition of the Church, and is founded upon four pillars:
- A deep love and devotion to the Blessed Eucharist in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
- Faithful following of Christ the High Priest, source of all grace, our example and our inspiration.
- Filial love and true devotion to Mary the Mother of Priests and patroness of our seminary, Our Lady of Guadalupe.
- Loyalty and fidelity to, and dependence on, the Magisterium of the Church and the successor of Saint Peter, our Patron.
The Coat of Arms of the Fraternity
The two crossed keys principally evoke Saint Peter, Patron of our Fraternity. They also refer to the Holy See, to which we have been united with indefectible fidelity since our foundation. The absence of a tiara and the color of the background, however, clearly distinguish our arms from those of the Apostolic See. The blue background, a Marian color, reminds us that the FSSP is under the protection of the Mother of God (Constitutions #4). Lastly, the tears commemorate the difficult historical circumstances of our inception: “Qui seminant in lacrimis, in exsultatione metent” (Ps 125, 5), as well as Saint Peter’s triple assertion of love for the Lord (Jn 21, 15-17). This number may also evoke the three central aspects of our charism – hierarchical fidelity, doctrinal rectitude and the Gregorian liturgy.
Founding of the Fraternity
In 1988, Pope John Paul II established the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter as a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right, and approved its constitutions. The Fraternity was founded in response to the Holy Father’s call to ecclesial unity and the new evangelization. Hence, our name denotes a filial love and loyalty to the Supreme Pontiff. The primary patron of the Fraternity from its inception was Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, later becoming Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
History of the FSSP in North America
In 1994, with the permission of Bishop Timlin, Father Josef Bisig announced the establishment of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary at Elmhurst. It was soon apparent that the growing number of seminarians mandated a separate building. In 1998, at the invitation of Bishop Fabian W. Bruskewitz, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska, the decision was made to construct a seminary in Denton, and in the fall of 2000 the new seminary opened.
Since its formation, the North American District has experienced a continuing increase in the establishment of parishes and apostolates. Under Father Devillers, first North American District Superior, and his successors, Frs. Paul Carr and George Gabet (the current District Superior), parishes and apostolates have been established in seventeen dioceses in the United States. In addition to the aforementioned dioceses they include, the Archdiocese of Denver, Colorado and the Dioceses of Rapid City (South Dakota), Little Rock (Arkansas), Lincoln and Omaha (Nebraska), Youngstown (Ohio), Paterson (New Jersey), Kansas City (Kansas), Atlanta (Georgia), Tulsa and Oklahoma City (Oklahoma), Corpus Christi and Dallas (Texas), Colorado Springs (Colorado), Indianapolis (Indiana), Sacramento (California) and Boise City (Idaho). All Saints Catholic Church became the newest parish to be served by the Fraternity, with priests taking over administrative and pastoral duties of the Parish in July 2013.
In 1995 the pastoral work of the District truly became “North American” with the invitation to the Fraternity by His Grace, Archbishop Marcel Gervais, Archbishop of Ottawa (Ontario), to minister in Canada. With the invitation of other members of the Canadian hierarchy the Fraternity has established parishes and apostolates in Ottawa and St. Catharines (Ontario), Calgary (Alberta) and Vancouver (British Columbia).
Through its first decade the number of District priests has also increased tremendously. From its original two members the District now has 75 priests engaged in pastoral or seminary work. This number continues to grow each year through ordinations.
