FIUV General Assembly 2023


Last weekend the annual Summorum Pontificum 'Ad Petri Sedem' Pilgrimage took place, in which the FIUV participated. Following the singing of Sext in St Peter's, we had our General Assembly in the afternoon. Our General Assemblies take place every two years.

This is rather bad photo of us beginning the meeting by singing the Veni Creator Spiritus. For the first time, we allowed online participation, via Zoom, and about half of those who took part used this option. About 20 member associations attended in total, from all over the world: from Mexico to Japan, from Russia to India, from Canada to Argentina.

As well as other business, the General Assembly (re)elects the President, and members of the Council, of the Federation. Following the General Assembly, the Council (re)elects the Secretary and Treasurer, and can co-opt extra members. The Officers of the Federation are now as follows:

President, Joseph Shaw (Latin Mass Society, England and Wales)

Secretary, Andris Amolins (Una Voce Latvia)

Treasurer, Monika Rheinschmitt (Pro Missa Tridentina, Germany)

The President and Treasurer are the same as last time, but the Secretary is new: perhaps the first time we have had an officer from the Baltic States, though Mr Amolins is a long-standing member of the Council. Here he is with his national flag, outside St Peter's.


You can see the whole Council on the dedicated page of this website here.
