The apostolate of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest in Libreville, Gabon, has been raised to a personal parish by H.E. Basile Mvé Engone, Archbishop of Libreville. The event has been marked by a Pontifical Mass in the usus antiquior celebrated by Msgr. Mvé Engone, at which the bishop of Port-Gentil, Mathieu Madega, as well as ministers of the Gabonese government assisted. Images of the erection of the personal parish of Our Lady of Lourdes can be found at the website of the Institute; here are some impressions:
