Dozens of friends of the Institute from the four corners of the United States came to the Shrine of Christ the King for the national retreat of the lay Society of the Sacred Heart.

His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, Archbishop of Chicago and President of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, celebrated Solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament with Te Deum at the Shrine of Christ the King on Friday, June 12.

On Monday, June 29, 2009, thirteen first-year seminarians received their cassock from Monsignor Gilles Wach; they were tonsured on June 30 by the Most Reverend Basil Meeking, Bishop Emeritus of Christchurch, New Zealand. Bishop Meeking also conferred minor orders the same day to over forty young men, in addition to ordaining several subdeacons on Wednesday, July 1.

Over five hundred faithful and friends of the Institute — a much larger crowd than expected—participated in a pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Our Lady Help of Christians at the Basilica of Holy Hill near Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Saturday, May 23.
