Need some stats

These may not be the exact numbers you are looking for but they're useful to know anyway.  I put them together early last year  and I think the info came from the three group's websites.



SSPX:  January 2010 -  511 priests and over 200 seminarians. The priests are distributed among the 6 seminaries and about 125 houses and churches, in 30 countries spread on the 5 continents.

In 2011 they gained 58 new seminarians.  18 in the USA thus bringing their Minnesota seminary to 100 seminarians.

Institute of Christ the King:

(taken from their current webpage 2-11-12)
50 priests
80 seminarians

Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter

Statistics as of October 1, 2011:
Total: 392
•Priests (including associated
and postulating priests): 228
•Deacons: 10
•Non-deacons seminarians
(including postulants): 154
•Average age of members: 36 years
•Deceased members: 5
•Nationalities: 35

Judging by the numbers, the three groups will increase in numbers 50% over the next 8 years.


Whenever a group of priests has a number of seminarians equal to half the number of priests they are growing really fast.  The Institute actually has more seminarians than priests.
