Ecclesia Dei Society of Saint Joseph (EDSSJ) is now a member of the Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce
The Ecclesia Dei Society of Saint Joseph (EDSSJ) has been accepted as the first Philippine member of Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce. EDSSJ traces its origins to 1986, when the Traditional Latin Mass first began to be celebrated once more in the Sto. Domingo Church (then located in the Archdiocese of Manila). Through many difficult years the group has persevered, and is currently based in the Parish of the Lord of Divine Mercy, the sole parish in the entire Philippines where the Traditional Latin Mass is celebrated everyday under the provisions of Summorum Pontificum. The Chairman of the Society is Dennis Raymond Maturan, the Chaplain is Fr. Michell Joe Zerrudo, while I and Gerald Cenir of Pro Deo et Patria are among the Board Members.
