In a recent internal letter to all the priests of the SSPX Fr.Pagliarani, the Superior General said that Br.Huondor would not be retiring to the SSPX school in Wangs.

It is an unusual choice, to say the least. Swiss Bishop Vitus Huonder, the bishop of Chur for the last 12 years, has announced that he will live in retirement at a hostel for boys belonging to the Sancta Maria Institute at Wangs in Sankt Gallen canton.

"Like Pope Francis, I would like to offer my contribution to church unity, not to marginalize but to discern, accompany and assist [the SSPX] to integrate," he said.
The same day, the Holy See Press Office indicated that Pope Francis had accepted Bishop Huonder's resignation two years after the canonical retirement age of 75.
