The Society of Saint Pius X is a society of apostolic life, founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (1905-1991) in Switzerland in 1970. Faced with the crisis of faith and secularization, the Society of Saint Pius X dedicates itself to the defense of the Catholic priesthood and the transmission of the faith to future generations:
Along with the priests, the Society also includes the branches of brothers and sisters (religious active in the apostolic life) who assist their priests in carrying out their functions within the various communities around the world.
Numerous members of this congregation are engaged in the apostolate of Catholic schools as chaplains, leaders, professors or educators. Currently, in America, the Society of Saint Pius X runs more than 25 schools.
