The Very Rev. Arnaud Devillers, F.S.S.P.
Title Former Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter
Predecessor The Rev. Josef Bisig
Successor The Rev. John Berg

Arnaud Devillers, F.S.S.P., was the Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter between 2000 and 2006. Controversially, he was not elected by members of the Fraternity, but was appointed directly by the president of the Ecclesia Dei commission, Cardinal Darío Castrillón Hoyos. The background to his appointment was an argument within the ranks of the Fraternity as to whether they should say the Mass of Paul VI if asked to by their bishop. Devillers was seen to be a neutral candidate who was not strongly in favour of either side of the argument. He was the second Superior General after Josef Bisig and was succeeded by John Berg.
