Some time ago in the Catholic Herald it was reported that Bishop Mark Davies of the diocese of Shrewsbury hd given permission for the Institute of the Christ the King Sovereign Priest to take charge of a church within his diocese.

The Instisute has now taken up residence in the presbytery belonging to the church of St Peter and St Paul, New Brighton and I went to pay them a fraternal visit last Thursday.  Caon Olivier Meney is the first priest to be assigned there. (Picture left)  Others will be coming to join him in the near future. 

The Institue is committed to the celebration of the Mass and Sacraments according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. Further information about the Institue can be found here: (American Website) and here: (General Website, in French).

Bishop Davies has asked that the church of St Peter and Paul become a Centre for Eucharistic Adoration in his diocese.  Please pray for the success of this venture and for Canon Meney in particular.
