The highpoint and crowning moment of the scholastic year at St. Philip Neri International Seminary, Ordination Week is the opportunity to manifest 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.

The 2017 Institute of Christ the King Choir Camp will take place from Sunday, August 6 to Friday, August 11, 2017.

Since the Institute's last Chant workshop seven years ago in Chicago, both the level of interest and commitment to Sacred Music have clearly grown in all apostolates.

Sursum Corda is a nationwide initiative to foster the spiritual lives of the young adults in the apostolates of the Institute of Christ the King. For the seventh year in a row, Sursum Corda is offering a social and spiritual weekend for young people ages 18 and up, August 11-14.

On Saturday, February 18th, the Canons and faithful Old St. Patrick Oratory welcomed His Excellency, the Most Reverend James V. Johnston, Bishop of Kansas City-Saint Joseph, Missouri, for his second visit this year. On this occasion, His Excellency came to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation with the assistance of Canon Talarico, Provincial Superior of the Institute in the U.S., Canon Glenn Gardner, Vice-Rector of Old St. Patrick Oratory and Canon William Avis, Master of Ceremonies for the American province.
