Biography: An American, Father Berg serves as the Superior-General of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter and resides at its’ General House in Fribourg, Switzerland.  Father Berg studied philosophy at Saint Thomas Aquinas College (California, USA) and theology at The International Seminary of St. Peter in Wigratzbad (Bavaria, Germany). Father Berg holds a degree in theology from the Pontificia Università della Santa Croce in Rome.

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) is a Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical Right canonically established by Pope John Paul II in 1988. The particular charism and mission of the Fraternity is to offer the Sacred Liturgy, including the Holy Mass and the Divine Office, as well as the sacraments, in all of their traditional solemnity, according to the Latin liturgical books of 1962. The Fraternity's name denotes their thanksgiving, filial love, and loyalty to the Supreme Pontiff, who encourages their growth, as well as the brotherly unity in Christ which their priests strive to have characterized in their life and work.
