On the evening of July 3, the members of the General Chapter arrived at the Seminary of Econe, the birthplace of the Society of St. Pius X founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1970.
They will follow a priestly retreat to prepare them spiritually for the beginning of the Chapter on July 11.
The retreat is being preached by Fr. Emeric Baudot, currently prior of St. Nicolas du Chardonnet in Paris, and first assistant of the District of France.
Ordained a priest on September 2, 1988, by Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, Fr. Baudot served as principal of the Sainte-Marie school near Saint-Malo from 1993 to 2001, but also as bursar for the District of France (1990-1993) and General Bursar of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X for 12 years, from 2002 to 2014.
All the members of the Chapter recommend themselves to your charitable prayers.
