Mater Misericordiæ glorifies God, uniting its members in faith, hope and charity through profession of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Faith and through participation in the Sacraments and Traditional Rites of the Missale Romanum of 1962, under the governance of the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix and the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter.
Mater Misericordiæ meaning Mother of Mercy
In 2005 Bishop Olmsted invited the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter FSSP to take care of those Catholics in the Diocese of Phoenix who desired the Traditional Roman Liturgy. So whether you are new, just seeking information, or even if you’ve been away from the Church, we warmly welcome you to Mater Misericordiæ Catholic Parish.
Why the Extraordinary Form?
From the official FSSP website:
“Our Fraternity has chosen to place the Extraordinary Form, the traditional Roman Rite, at the heart of our charism because we believe that it distinctly expresses the sacrificial nature of the priesthood and provides a steady, unchanging and beautiful mode of prayer sanctified by time and usage.”
