Basilica of Our Lady in Fribourg, Switzerland

The Most Rev Charles Morerod, bishop of Lausanne-Geneva-Fribourg, has entrusted the Basilica of Notre Dame in Fribourg to the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter and designated it for the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. The official installation of the FSSP in the Basilica took place today, with a Mass celebrated by the Superior General of the Fraternity, Fr. John Berg.

The Basilica dates back to the beginning of the 13th Century, and is the oldest church in the city. Fribourg is also the location of the international headquarters of the FSSP.
