Apostolates

The SSPX also encourages and organizes groups of zealous men and women around specific apostolic goals. These groups engage in a wide variety of activities, ranging from care of the sick and feeding the poor to prayer crusades to public profession of the rights of God.

Overview of Apostolates

  • Eucharistic Crusade

    By allowing young children to approach the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist at the age of reason, St. Pius X powerfully encouraged children to strive to holiness. Thus he originated a great movement of popular piety among youth which was created in 1914 by a Belgian priest, Fr. Edouard Poppe (1890-1924). The Eucharistic Crusade was launched again by the seminarians in Econe in the 1980’s.
