Societas Sacerdotalis

The Priestly Society of Christ the King

Clergy


The Clergy of the Society of Christ the King are properly formed by the norms of the Holy Church and validly ordained in the traditional (pre-Vatican II) Latin Rite of the Catholic Church.

All members have taken the perpetual Vows of the Evangelical Counsels and live in the Spirit
of Poverty, the Rule of Obedience and the Obligation of Chastity (i.e.: celibate and not married.).
Those who cannot live, unhesitatingly, the Church's law concerning purity and chastity do not
have a calling (vocation) to the Religious or Priestly life.
