Our Church Members

The Catholic Society of Pope Leo XIII to the USA serving with the guidance of the CACIA and the Traditional Catholic Society of Pope Leo - UK ( Latin Rite ) as an extra-territorial Province and Jurisdiction with member Parishes and Clergy in Full Communion and working together in Unity.


“The Holy Catholic Apostolic Church is a work of the Church, and it was born providentially in the Church and for the Church.”


But it was born in the particular circumstances in which the Church finds herself today.

A hierarchical work;

As a work of the Church, the province recognizes Pope Francis as Pope of the Holy Catholic Church and promises obedience to the Roman Pontiff in all of his legitimate acts.


It adheres


"with all its heart, with all its soul to Catholic Rome, guardian of the Catholic Faith and of the traditions necessary for the preservation of that Faith, to Eternal Rome, teacher of wisdom and truth."


On the other hand it refuses

"and has always refused to follow the Rome of the neo-Modernist and neo-Protestant tendency that clearly manifested itself in the Second Vatican Council and after the Council in all the reforms that resulted from it."

A structured work;

The practical organization of the Church follows its Statutes, which were recognized and praised by the Church. These Statutes are all aimed at the sanctification of the priest and provide the plan and the rules that its members strive to follow. In particular through their common life, organized in priories, the members find “a setting that breathes an atmosphere of faith, prayer and fraternal charity”.

An apostolic work;

“The Church is essentially apostolic.” Its members, when they are not dedicated to the formation of future priests in the seminaries, devote themselves to the service of the faithful in the chapels, the schools, the missions and the works of the apostolate.


" We have only one desire, to make Catholic priests, because the Catholic Church cannot continue without priests. We have no other ambition than to be able to exhale our last breath saying that we contributed to the building up of the Church and not to her destruction."


The nearly 40 priests of the United States are spread out among 10 houses called priories, where they live a community life.


Every weekend, many of our priests travel to over 10 missions (or Chapels) that we have around the country, in order to take care of the faithful's spiritual needs.


In this list you can find all our priories as well as all the chapels and missions served by Catholic Priests.
