The Society of Saint Pius V (commonly known as the SSPV) also operating under the names Congregation of St. Pius V and Daughters of Mary, is a Catholic priestly society, founded in 1983 by a group of priests in the United States expelled from the Society of St. Pius X by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. This group included Fr. Clarence Kelly, Fr. Daniel Dolan, Fr. Anthony Cekada and others. The main reasons for the split was because they opposed the SSPX using the Roman Missal of 1962 approved by Angelo Roncalli and did not regard new ordinations in the Vatican II Church as valid.

Not long after founding, some of the original priests left to found various groups, including Catholic Restoration. Fr. Kelly remained as the Superior of the SSPV. All of these are de facto sedevacantist organisations; holding that the Seat of St. Peter is presently vacant and there is no valid Roman Pope. Some of the former SSPV priests have since become Bishops through the line of Ngo Dinh Thuc, Archbishop of Huế in Vietnam. This includes Bishop Daniel Dolan and Bishop Donald Sandborn in 1993 and 2002 respectively.

Through Alfredo Méndez-Gonzalez, Bishop of Arecibo from Puerto Rico, the Superior of the SSPV was himself made Bishop Clarence Kelly in 1993. To date, Bishop Kelly has likewise only consecrated one bishop and that is Bishop Joseph Santay in 2007. The Society of St. Pius V only operates in the United States (it is particularly active in New York and Montana), it has around twenty five mass centers in various states where the Tridentine Mass can be heard. There is also a convent for women known as St. Joseph's Novitiate and the Immaculate Heart Seminary for priests. Sermons from present and former members are easily accessable through the internet.
