Institut St. Philipp Neri

We have shared items with you before from the Institut St. Philipp Neri in Berlin, Germany, and I wished to inform readers that this priestly society has now made an English edition of their webpage available.

The Institute of St Philip Neri is modelled on the Oratory of St Philip Neri and is the first German foundation which offers the Mass exclusively in the usus antiquior. It also relies solely on private support, including financial support. (For those who are curious about this, the Institute explains it as follows: "In Germany, a special “church tax” ordinarily provides for the essential needs of parishes and dioceses. Since the Institute is directly responsible to the Holy See it falls outside this system. This means, however, that it is unable to benefit from receiving church tax.")

Do take a look at them.
