Promoting vocations to traditional Catholic societies, institutes, and religious orders using the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite for men and for women.
Fratres laici in hac Fraternitate nondum (?) inveniuntur.
Anonymous: Can you say that again in English please?
Mark,Do you have any idea how many priests the Friars of the Immaculate have? I couldn't find the statistics, but I think I've read that they might have more priests than the Fraternity, making them, outside the SSPX, the largest traditional order.
Jon,I don't really know. I don't think they have more Priests than the FSSP but I could be wrong.If they are of Pontifical Right, though, then you ought to be able to get statistics from somewhere in the Vatican...
"Fratres laici in hac Fraternitate nondum inveniuntur". Do they not have any lay brothers in this Fraternity? Responsio negativa sed non auctoris!
As of Jan 01, 2008, the Franciscans of the Immaculate had 305 Friars and 120 Postulants. Note that this stat is nearly 2 years old, and they no doubt have many more now.
