Alfonso de Galarreta, SSPX (born January 14, 1957), is a bishop of the Society of Saint Pius X. He was declared excommunicated latae sententiae by the Roman Catholic Church because of his unauthorized consecration by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1988, deemed by the Holy See to be "unlawful" and "a schismatic act".

Early life and ministry

Galarreta was born in 1957 at Torrelavega in Spain, but emigrated early in life with his family to Argentina. In 1975 he entered the seminary at La Plata, where he remained for three years. In October 1978 he entered the Society of St. Pius X's International Seminary of St. Pius X at Écône in Switzerland.

In August 1980 he was ordained a priest by archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in Buenos Aires. After ordination he served first as a professor at the SSPX seminary in La Reja, Argentina. From 1985 to 1988 he was superior of the SSPX district of South America.
