FSSP Ordinations in Bavaria: photos

On Saturday 18th June, Archbishop Wolfgang Haas of Vaduz (Liechtenstein) ordained two members of the Fraternity of St Peter to the priesthood. They stand either side of the Archbishop in the above photograph: Daniel Bruckwilder, left, and Gwilym Evans, right. Fr Bruckwilder is from Germany; I and many others from the UK attended this event because Fr Evans is from Wales. He has attended many traditional events in England over the years, particularly the Latin Mass Society's walking pilgrimage to Walsingham: and will do so again this year.

Most of the photos in this post are by my Una Voce International (FIUV) colleague, Monika Rheinschmitt; a few are by me. Readers can click through to Flickr albums of more of her photographs of this event and mine. Tomorrow (Friday) I will post some photographs of Fr Evans' First Mass in Munich.


The ordinations took place some distance from the FSSP Seminary at Wigratzbad, Bavaria, in the Church of our Lady of the Assumption, Turkheim.

Everything about the event was meticulously prepared and executed; it was truly uplifting. 


Archbishop Haas very kindly stepped in at short notice to do the ordinations, when Bishop Czesław Kozon of Copenhagan was unable to do so, having tested positive for Covid.

The Bishops' Conference of England and Wales was represented by Mgr Keith Newton, the Ordinary of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.
