Can I attend a Traditionalist church?


A couple of years ago a Traditionalist parish was formed in my area. It is okay to attend Mass there? The priest is a former member of the SSPX.


If the church is recognized by your local Catholic diocese as a Catholic church, yes. However, if it is not affiliated with your local Catholic diocese, then no. I recommend calling your local diocese to find out about the status of the church.
