The handsome grounds of Our Lady of the Lake University were the setting for a recent pilgrimage sponsored by the Institute of Christ the King.

At the gracious invitation of His Excellency David Zubik, Bishop of Pittsburgh, on October 15, 2018, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest assumed responsibility for the pastoral care of the Latin Mass community which has been operating under the direction of the diocese for nearly 30 years.

Every other year, the Bishop of Oakland graciously comes to confirm the candidates prepared by the Institute for this very important Sacrament of Holy Mother Church.

Each year, during the last week of August, all of the canons of the Institute are invited back to our Motherhouse in Gricigliano, where they studied as seminarians, by the Prior General for a week-long “family reunion” known as the General Chapter.

On August 2, a fine Thursday morning in St. Louis, the pealing church bells at 10:00 am signaled the beginning of the Rite of Ordination at St. Francis de Sales Oratory.
