Well done to the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest! My last report of their progress is here.

The ICKSP Facebook page announces the following:

The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest receives a new mission in the UK!

The Right Rev. Mark Davies announced last week that he appoints Canon Smith, icrss, to celebrate week day Mass, hear confession and celebrate Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament at Shrewsbury Cathedral.

Canon Smith will be in charge of the celebration of Mass and Office at St Winefrides Shrewsbury, where we will reside with a Seminarian of the ICKSP.

Thank you, your Lordship!

We entrust this new foundation of the ICKSP to our Lady of Walsingham

The Shrewsbury Cathedral newsletter explains that the Institute has already been sending a priest to celebrate an EF Mass at 12:15pm each Sunday at St Winefride's; at the end of this month (September 2018) Canon Smith and a seminarian will move into the Presbytery there and weekday Masses will also be celebrated.

  1. This is fantastic news.
    It is fascinating to see how the Dioceses decay while authentic Catholic orders flourish.
