Institute of Christ the King in Shrewsbury

The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest is to have a foundation in Shrewsbury.  It has been announced that Bishop Davies has invited the Institute to have a second permanent presence in his diocese.  Canon Smith, who comes from Arcansas in the USA, along with a seminarian will be taking up residence at St Winefride's Church, which is part of the Cathedral parish in Shrewsbury.  Besides celebrating Sunday and weekday Masses at St Wilfrede's, Canon Smith will have some duties at the cathedral. 

Although the Institute of Christ the King already has charge of three churches in England (one at New Brighton and two in Preston), it is a new development for any traditional order of priests to have  regular duties at a cathedral.  This is further evidence of the integration of the Latin Mass into Catholic life in this country.

Canon Smith will be arriving in England before the end of September.
