His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, June 23, 2006, issued the official decree of erection of the Institute's church in Chicago as the Shrine of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. We are very grateful to His Eminence for allowing this Shrine, the first exclusively dedicated to the Traditional Latin Mass worldwide. The decree includes express permission for the celebration of all the Sacraments in the Traditional Rite, as well as the keeping of registers.

On Sunday, June 18, on the External Solemnity of Corpus Christi, was held the first Solemn Procession in the Institute's apostolate in Chicago. It was a very special occasion, as it was not only the first procession, but also the first use of our still-gutted church since the Institute of Christ the King arrived in Chicago. The procession commenced from the basement chapel in the priory building, where Mass is currently offered, from where Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament was solemnly carried to the street and into the church for a very moving Benediction.

Kansas City, Missouri, now has a daily Traditional Latin Mass. The Kansas City Latin Mass Community has been assigned a priest of the Institute of Christ the King through the gracious invitation of the Most Rev. Robert W. Finn, Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph. On October 9, 2005 the Institute's inaugural Mass was celebrated by Father Denis Buchholz, pro-rector of the apostolate in Kansas City, who was introduced by Msgr. Michael Schmitz, Vicar General of the Institute, and welcomed by the Most Reverend Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph. Temporarily functioning at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, the apostolate will be moved to Old St. Patrick once needed renovations are completed. The task of restoring the historic church building, dating of 1874, has only just begun.

Upon the restructuring of the South City Deanery of St. Louis, Missouri, Archbishop Raymond L. Burke has assigned the church of St. Francis de Sales, known as the "Cathedral of South St. Louis," to the care of the Institute of Christ the King, establishing it as an Oratory. Since January 2005 the Institute has had pastoral charge of the Latin Mass Apostolate of St. Louis, located at St. Agatha's Church, which, as of July 1, 2005, is now transferred to St. Francis de Sales Oratory. Besides administering the sacraments and attending to the needs of the faithful of the Oratory, the Institute will operate its pre-seminary program from this location, where candidates from the United States will come for the first steps in their formation before entering our International Seminary at the Institute's motherhouse in Gricigliano, Italy.
