As in previous years, this year's oblate retreat at St. Francis de Sales Oratory in St. Louis was an important time for self-reflection, good resolutions, and renewal both spiritual and physical.

At the invitation of His Excellency, the Most Reverend Allen Vigneron, Archbishop of Detroit, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest will establish a new Oratory at St. Joseph’s Church in Detroit.

The new Rector will be Canon Michael Stein, who will be assisted by Deacon Jonathan Fehrenbacher.

There's no place like home, is a sentiment most people are familiar with, and for the canons of the Institute this common feeling takes on a new resonance every year at the General Chapter meeting.

The highpoint and crowning moment of the academic year at St. Philip Neri International Seminary, Ordination Week is the opportunity to manifest liturgical devotion to Christ our King and Sovereign Priest, fidelity to His Church in union with her bishops, and reverence for the edifying traditions of Holy Mother Church. From July 4-7 about 75 seminarians received the either the clerical tonsure or one of the various Minor and Major Orders.
