About Us


Saint-Zéphirin-de-Stadacona is a church of the Catholic Archdiocese of Quebec, served by the priests of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) with the approval and blessing of Cardinal Gérald Cyprien Lacroix.

Our mission is to sanctify souls through the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Sacraments in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. All masses and sacraments are celebrated in Latin according to the 1962 liturgical norms.

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter was founded in 1988 as a clerical society of apostolic life of pontifical right. The mission of the Fraternity is to sanctify priests through the traditional Roman Rite liturgy and to place them at the service of the Catholic Church.

The first church of Saint-Zéphirin de Stadacona was built in 1890, then enlarged and transformed in 1917-1918 (present church).
It was featured in the 1953 Alfred Hitchcok movie “I Confess”.

In 2009, with the agreement of Cardinal Marc Ouellet, Saint-Zéphirin Church was acquired by the Fraternity of Saint Peter and received the status of a Chapellenie from the Archdiocese of Quebec.
