Photos: 25th Anniversary of the Institute / Low Requiem Mass (Sept. 1, 2015)


On it’s 25th anniversary, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest apostolate parish of St. Margaret Mary’s (Oakland, CA), celebrated this special event with a Requiem Low Mass followed by the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, last September 1, 2015. Canon Meney cited two reasons in choosing a requiem mass: First, as thanksgiving to the numerous clergy (specially deceased cardinals, bishops, priests) and faithful who have helped the Institute throughout the years, despite being marginalized by some of their confreres prior to the release of the Motu Propio “Summorum Pontificum” by the Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI. Secondly, the gospel chosen for the mass of the dead fittingly summarizes what the Institute is about: all dedicated to the liturgy; and to the Holy Eucharist: “If you do not eat his flesh and drink his blood, you will not have life everlasting”.
