Scottish traditionalist community regularized

August 23, 2012

The Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer, a traditionalist community based on an island off the coast of Scotland, has been granted official status as a “clerical institute of diocesan right” in the Aberdeen diocese.

The religious community, more commonly known as the Transalpine Redemptorists, had previously been affiliated with the Society of St. Pius X. The group’s regularization concludes a process that began in 2008 when the 15 members applied to be admitted into full communion with the Holy See.

    Praise be to God! Would that all of the SSPX members return "Home" to the "One, True Church."
