The other thread about the awful manner in which Fr. Pinaud was treated makes me wonder if he has given any thought to working with or joining CMRI.
CMRI currently operates almost 60 chapels and mass locations in the United States alone, and is very active internationally, in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, etc.
The CMRI could really use good priests to keep meeting the needs of so many Catholics who keep calling them to expand into their areas but they are already spread thin.
The CMRI does not require priests who work with them to join their order, that decision is totally for the individual priest to make. Many CMRI priests are secular priests who are priests affiliated with CMRI but not religious. They work with CMRI, live in their rectories, receive their assignments from the leadership, but ate free to leave, as they are not religious. Also, some former SSPX priests also assist CMRI, but on an as needed basis.
If this sounds like a good option for Fr. Pinaud, Bp. Pivarunas is a very approachable and good leader, and the CMRI is thriving and growing exponentially under his leadership. They operate under a solid pre-Vatican II rule, and their priests are all hard working zealous priests who are actively working all over the place to save souls.
The CMRI would offer any good priest an assignment to do God's work, and I strongly recommend him to at least think about this, and if possible visit St. Michael's in Washington, their flagship church, and speak you the priests, or visit Bp. Pivarunas in Omaha, NE and speak with him directly ask questions and learn more about them.
(No CMRI member spoke to me about this, it is just my own thoughts and opinion, for what it's worth.)
