    Dear Faithful and Friends,

    As you have been told previously, the gathering of our little congregation at the Everly Funeral Home in Falls Church can only be a transitory step in the life of our Mission. Since the beginning of the St Pius X Mission in 2012, the lay staff and the priests have been working hard in order to identify and purchase a permanent church. And again last year your priests have been told by Bishop Fellay, then their Superior, that the Society of St Pius X must possess its own Church in the Washington DC area.

    It is now a fact that the St Pius X Mission of Washington DC has acquired its permanent building. In less than a month a property was found, assessed for being very suitable for our needs, and paid for in full by an anonymous benefactor. The new home of our Mission is in Maryland:

    7604 S Osborne Rd


    Upper Marlboro, MD, 20772
    [size={defaultattr}][font={defaultattr}][size={defaultattr}][font={defaultattr}]



    It is a stone's throw East of Joint Base Andrews. On a Sunday morning, it is eight minutes from the Beltway, exit 11 A.

    When reviewing the facts your priests and their superiors have been obliged to recognize that this place meets all the requirements that had been identified over the years for such a Chapel. Besides the regular advantage of a permanent location (Masses celebrated on Holy days and 1st Saturdays, the possibility of a more convenient time for Sunday Mass, living quarters for the priest) this particular building:

    -is close from Washington DC and can truly be called the SSPX Chapel of Washington DC;
    -is already a church and this allows us to enter it and to hold our Sunday Masses there as soon as it pleases, without the need of extensive work for remodeling;
    -sits on a five acres property which can be developed in the future for the building of a larger Church and of a Rectory house;  
    -does not add any time to the trip your priests have to make from the Seminary in Central Virginia;
    -is 30 minutes from Reagan Airport; 40 minutes from Baltimore International;
    -is located in a beautiful area not yet too developed.

    Also, it is a gift already paid for.”

    I was told yesterday thst the first Mass is on August 25th.

    It seems to me that a "trinity independent Baptist church" would need some remodeling to make it a true Catholic-looking Church inside and out.
    Just goes to show how closely the sspx has joined the NO.

  • Paid for in full by an anonymous benefactor?  Sounds a bit fishy to me.

    Well, they used to have an affiliated chapel in the DC area, but they alienated Father Ringrose.

  • We pray for a New SSPX Chapel in New York City so that we can upgrade from mission status. There are a lot of Jews to convert here. I hope that one day in my lifetime we Catholics in the city would unite under one banner. And in the world at large. There are good people here, but we are rudderless for the most part.

    Sometimes in life you take what you can get.  It doesn't get any cheaper than free.  A Baptist church would be pretty much a blank slate which could be easily retrofitted to accommodate traditional Catholic piety.  This doesn't take a thing in the world away from the SSPX or its Catholicity (which, for the record, I accept without reserve).

    Your comment sounds like an antisemitic slur/canard/felony to me.

    New York City real estate is so expensive that it'll probably never happen.

    List price of $960K.

    That's some benefactor.

    Why is this anonymous? Lots of chapels start off as former Protestant churches.  That isn’t a reason for the SSPX sliding towards the novus ordo.  Of course it will take work to make it look Catholic.  I’ve been in a few chapels, formerly Protestant, that are beautifully Catholic.  There is even a chapel of the SSPX that I’ve been told was originally a factory that made women’s undergarments!  I’ve never been there, but I highly doubt there are sewing machines or samples of the products lying around!  
    What I can’t help but notice is that traditionalists establish new chapels in response to the presence of existing chapels.  Instead of starting a Catholic mission in places without Catholics or traditional Mass, they compete with fellow trads.  In the meantime, geographically isolated Catholics remain stuck in novus ordo parishes or involuntarily home alone. 
    THIS IS PROTESTANT BEHAVIOR.  Catholics need to return to being true missionaries.  Isn’t there an independent traditional chapel west of D.C.?  St Athanasius?  Is this not what the Indult parishes did in response to SSPX when it was still fighting modernism?  Establish an Indult parish in hopes of stealing away people from the SSPX?  Why not start a chapel in an area without any traditional venue?  I have a disabled cousin who’d love to be able to hear Latin Mass and receive traditional Last Rites.  She cannot move and lives in north central Maine. I believe there is someone on Cathinfo from Vermont who rarely, if ever has Mass or Sacraments.  The SSPX is motivated too much by competing for sheep and going where the money is than the true Apostolic missionary spirit.  What happened to Our Lord’s command to preach to all nations making converts?

    That is such a bizarre characterization of my comment that I hardly know how to respond.
    The last time I checked, accepting the gift of a free chapel and the accompanying real estate (a fortiori in the stratospheric DC real estate market!) was just good stewardship and the gracious acceptance of Divine Providence.
