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.

Dr. Alice von Hildebrand

On Saturday, May 6, Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, a long-time friend of the Institute of Christ the King, gave a conference at the Institute's headquarters in Chicago on the true role of women in society and the Church. The large crowd of attendees from not only the greater Chicago area, but from in- and out-of-state, were treated to a thought-provoking and entertaining analysis of certain currents of thought on the nature of women. A reception and Holy Hour completed the afternoon, on this First Saturday of the "Month of Mary," Our Lady. CDs of Dr. von Hildebrand's talk are available from St. Joseph Radio, P.O. Box 2983, Orange, CA 92859, 714-744-0336.
