Six young men (four Englishmen and two Irishmen) are discerning their vocation at the House of Formation belonging to the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, in Preston. They will spend a year there before deciding whether to apply to join the Institute's International Seminary in Gricigliano, near Florence. Last year, there were four young men in the house, and two of them are now at Gricigliano and one has decided to become an Oblate of the Institute. In addition another young man was accepted into the seminary without the need to attend the House of Discernment.
There are now five seminarians (two in their third year and three in their first year) studying at Gricigliano who joined as a result of attending the Institute's missions in England. There could be a further six next year.
One must pray that all (or at least most) of these young men are eventually ordained and that the Institute will continue to prosper in these islands.
