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.
