The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter purchased Casa Cristo Rey two years ago with the hope of eventually developing it into a house of formation for Spanish speaking aspirants to the priesthood. In the
meantime Casa Cristo Rey serves as the Rectory and pastoral house for the FSSP´s parish, San Pedro en Cadenas in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Casa Cristo Rey has:

  • 17 bedrooms
  • Library
  • Classrooms
  • Offices
  • Chapel
  • Kitchen
  • Laundry room
  • Living room
  • Balcony

Making it an excellent site to host the Saint Junipero Serra Institute, as well as vocational retreat. All students of the SJS Institute reside in Casa Cristo Rey and in the same building attend their clases, and assist at Mass and the Divine Office.
