The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, with the St. Francis de Sales Oratory in St. Louis, welcomes wholeheartedly the Archbishop-elect, the Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson. After several months of generous prayers for a new bishop we joyfully assure His Excellency of our continued faithful support and prayers. The clergy and staff at the Oratory together with all the faithful share in the gratefulness of the whole Archdiocese for the appointment by His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI.
Therefore on Sunday, April 26, a Solemn “Te Deum” will be sung after the 10 am Mass at St. Francis de Sales Oratory. (The Te Deum is a hymn of thanksgiving, expressing the sentiment of deep gratefulness toward God Almighty for His benefits.)
Join us in praying for the new Shepherd of our Archdiocese!
