About us

* St Paul of the Cross prayed for the conversion of England and founded the Passionists, whose Blessed Dominic Barbari greatly influenced Blessed John Henry Newman, and Received him into the Church. The British Province of the Confraternity was founded in direct response to Pope Benedict’s ‘Year for Priests’, his State Visit to Britain, and his Beatification of Blessed John Henry Newman.

In response to Pope Benedict XVI’s ‘Year for Priests’, and on the Memoria of St Paul of the Cross* (19th October 2010), Priests of various southern dioceses, with the good wishes and encouragement of others from elsewhere in Britain, voted unanimously to found the British Province of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy for the sanctification and support of Priests, and in promotion of authentic Priestly life, holiness and mission by

“Anchor Your Priesthood

in Your Relationship with Christ.”

Pope Francis

Schatten unter Teamfotos.

“Without the Sacrament of Holy Orders, we would not have the Lord. 

Who put Him there in that tabernacle? The priest. 

Who welcomed your soul at the beginning of your life? The priest. 

Who feeds your soul and gives it strength for its journey? The priest. 

Who will prepare it to appear before God, bathing it one last time in the blood of Jesus Christ? The priest, always the priest. 

And if this soul should happen to die [as a result of sin], who will raise it up, who will restore its calm and peace? Again, the priest. ... 

After God, the priest is everything! ... Only in heaven will he fully realize what he is.”

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Bishop Rey of Fréjus-Toulon

​

Bishop Rey is described as a “leading figure in the French episcopate” (Wikipedia) but on this side of the English Channel is a well-kept secret. This is despite the impressive number of vocations which have come from his diocese in recent years. Under the headline “French bishop breathes new life into the priesthood” the Guardian in August 2012 reported on his work with different religious communities: “Not everyone agrees with the strategy but it has led to the ordination of large numbers of priests compared with most French dioceses, where aging priests and a shortage of new ones are the norm. Bishop Rey's diocese has 210 priests with an average age of 54.” He is involved in Sacra Liturgia, a dynamic project which runs regular conferences with beautiful liturgies in both Forms of the Roman Rite. Some of you may remember him from the memorable Sacra Liturgia conference in South Kensington in 2016 at which Cardinal Sarah made an impassioned appeal for Mass ad orientem.
