Archbishop Burke to Ordain Institute Preists in Saint Louis

Here is a letter, Priestly ordinations at the Cathedral of St. Louis:
3 January 2006

Dear friends,

It is my great joy to officially announce that the Archbishop of Saint Louis, His Grace Raymond L. Burke, will ordain two of our Deacons to the Holy Priesthood in the Cathedral of Saint Louis on the Feast of the Sacred Heart on Friday, June 15, 2007, at 1:00 p.m. This will be the first time that the priests of the Institute are ordained in the United States.

The Ordinations will take place in the presence of our Prior General, Monsignor Gilles Wach, and a large number of seminarians from Gricigliano, who will travel to the United States for this special occasion.

All are cordially invited to attend this joyous occasion of great solemnity.

Yours very truly in Christ the King,

Msgr. R. Michael Schmitz
Vicar General in the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest
Provincial Superior for the Institute in the United States
Archbishop Burke ordained two priests of the Institute in 2006, and three in 2005, both times at the Institute's seminary in Gricigliano, Italy.

The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest (Latin: Institutum Christi Regis Summi Sacerdotis) is an international apostolate that celebrates the Latin liturgy in the form that existed before the reforms of the Second Vatican Council. It also has a traditional priestly formation program. The Institute follows the charitable attitude of one of its co-patrons, Saint Francis de Sales, who said "One drop of honey attracts more bees than a barrel of vinegar." The Institute is a patron of traditional Catholic arts, and operates Saint Francis de Sales Oratory in Saint Louis, Missouri.
