Parish Guilds & Confraternities
Guild of St. Peter ad Vincula
The Infant of Prague Chapel is a Mission Chapel of the Guild of St. Peter ad Vincula, an organization of priests, religious, and lay oblates dedicated to the worldwide restoration of the traditional Roman Catholic faith, liturgy and values through prayers and penance. The Guild actively seeks vocations to the priesthood and the religious life, and is glad to welcome the assistance of lay members who are affiliated to one of our Missions or Priories. The Guild prays daily for the restoration of Christendom.
Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary
Members of the Rosary Confraternity recite the public Rosary before Mass on the feastdays of the Blessed Virgin, and bind themselves to its daily recitation together in family, or at least in private. In addition, members shall have an especial dedication to Our Lady of Fatima, and shall hold Rosary Processions when possible in her honour.
Guild of All Souls
The Guild of All Souls is particularly devoted to the alleviation of the pains of the Church Suffering and Expectant. To that effect the Guild sponsors a monthly Requiem Mass for the souls of those deceased inscribed in its lists, and encourages the recitation of the Office of the Dead. An annual procession shall be held in a local cemetery during the Octave of All Saints.
Archconfraternity of St. Stephen
Drawing on its membership from the young men of the Mission centres, the Guild of St. Stephen has the aims of impressing on them the privilege of serving Mass, teaching them the rubrics of serving Mass and other functions, and educating them in the holy liturgy. Postulants must be tested before their enrollment, and also before advancement to higher ranks of service.
Prague Schola Cantorum
Once established, the Choir of the Holy Infant of Prague Chapel shall sing the High Mass on Sundays and feastdays throughout the year, as well as other liturgical and devotional functions as required.
