Comments

The Society of Saint Pius X, Rockdale, is one of a number of locations throughout Australia. On 1 November 1970, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, in response to requests of young men interested in a traditional priestly formation, founded the Society. Eleven young men began their studies under the archbishop at a new seminary in Econe, Switzerland. Only Latin rite of Mass permitted.
