This coming Sunday (January 17, 2010), marks the 5th Anniversary of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest at St. Margaret Mary's Church in Oakland, California, USA. It was five years ago, that Most Rev. Bishop Allen H. Vigneron (now Archbishop of Detroit) invited the Institute to the Diocese of Oakland. We thank God for this precious gift of having the Traditional Latin Mass (now known as the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) available 7 days a week, for the work done by our dedicated priests, Canon Michael Wiener (now serving the St. Francis de Sales Oratory in St. Louis, Missouri) and Canon Jean Marie Moreau, and the many graces received through this apostolate during these five years.
A special potluck is now being organized. Donations and any volunteer help will be appreciated. The bar will be sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. One may contact Jean Duenas (firstname.lastname@example.org), Vicki Duenas (email@example.com) or Diana Henriksson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'll be attending or for any inquiries of this special event.
Last year, during the 4th Year Anniversary celebration, Canon Moreau gave us a slideshow presentation of how the Institute started in Gabon, Africa. I thought it might be timely to post this series of youtube videos on the blog for the benefit of those who want to know more about the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest:
