Convent in Ardee


Further to the previous post, the Institute of Christ the King paid 925,000 euros for the convent in Ardee.  To do this they had to borrow 600,000 euros, which they need to pay back.  There is a Go Fund Me page and other ways of making donations for the project on the Irish site of the Institute, and they are appealing for donations.  Over 1,500 euros were raised in the first three days of the appeal, so a good start has been made.

Considering the size of the building, and the amount of land associated with it, the Institute have got good value for money.  Here are some photographs.

Not surprisingly, the Institute are appealing for funds so that they can repay the debt.  There is a Go Fund Me page and there are other ways of of making a donation on the Irish website of the ICKSP.  In the first hree days of the appeal, 1,500 euros were raised on Go Fund Me, so that is a good start.

Institute of Christ the King Purchase Convent in Ireland.


The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest has purchased a Convent in the town of Ardee which is about 40 miles north of Dublin.  The Sister Adorers of the Royal Heart of Jesus, the female branch of the Order, will be moving into the Convent later this year.  It is a truly beautiful building with its own chapel, and set in 10 acres of land, and was formerly owned by the Sisters of Mercy.
