The Guild and Our Apostolate

The Guild of St. Peter ad Vincula was established in 2014 by the Confraternity of Ss. Peter & Paul as a congregation of Catholic priests, religious, and laity, working and praying together for the restoration of the traditions of the Church, primarily though prayer and penance.

We declare our complete submission to the Roman Catholic Church, and seek to do our part to bring her back to her own unambiguous submission to the will of God. We remain ever mindful of the promise of His Divine Son that He will abide in His Church even until the end of time. We firmly believe all the truths of the Catholic Church as taught throughout her history, and are ready to die to preserve the integrity of this Faith. We take as our patron saint the first holy Pope and Bishop of Rome to whom Our Lord gave the keys of His kingdom. The See of Peter is now in chains, and we are anxious to answer the call of that same Angel who appeared to our glorious patron in prison, saying: "Arise up quickly. Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me."

Membership is open to all Catholics who have the vocation to assist in this godly work. We have three tiers of membership: Our priests are dedicated to providing the traditional Mass and sacraments. Our religious men and woman divide their time between prayer, chiefly in the common recitation of the Divine Office, and work in the active apostolate. Our oblates attach themselves to the work of a specific mission and help support its apostolate insomuch as their duties of life permit.

Our aim is to provide peaceful and harmonious communities of priests, religious, and lay oblates where Roman Catholics who recognize that things have not been going well with the Church since Vatican II can rediscover their traditional faith and values and help provide an oasis of truth and prayer for all who seek God.

We have no interest in the polemics and never-ending divisions prevalent among so many who practice the traditional form of worship. Our aim is rather to provide a spiritual home for those fellow Catholics who seek to lay aside divisive trivialities and unite instead around the never-changing dogmas and moral values taught by Christ’s Church.

We therefore welcome to our Missions and Priories all those of good will, who, while they may vigorously hold their own opinions on matters yet undecided by the Church’s teaching authority, still recognize that other Catholics of similar good will may favor an alternative opinion. We support all attempts by those who confess the same faith and reject Modernism to try to find answers to the often vexing questions posed by the current situation in the Church. At the same time we reject any pretense of authority by elevating our conclusions to the level of “dogmas”.

his does not imply any weakness whatsoever in our defense of the actual dogmas and teachings of the Church which have been passed down to us undefiled since the time of the Apostles, and which have been defined and otherwise imposed as divinely revealed truth by the legitimate teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church. By these truths we live, and for these truths we are prepared to die.

We remain Roman Catholic, with our allegiance to the everlasting Rome of truth and tradition, resigned in these unhappy times in which we live to submit entirely to the unseen Will of God. In the absence of legitimately authorized superiors, we count on God alone to bestow His blessings on our enterprises, and we look to the powerful protection and guidance of Christ the King, as manifested in the holy innocence of His infancy. For this reason we have recognized in the Holy Infant of Prague the supreme expression of this absolute power absolutely incorrupt. We have remembered His words and etched them on our hearts, that “Except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” And we surrender our own will unto His, as with humble submission we call to mind the words of Isaiah the Prophet, who told of the day when “a little child shall lead them.”
