News from the ICKSP in England

We reported last week that the shrine of St. Walburge in Preston, England, in the Diocese of Lancaster, was to celebrate this past Saturday the inaugural Mass of its new life as a shrine dedicated to Eucharistic Adoration, under the care of the Institute of Christ the King. A reader has posted a number of photographs of the Mass on flickr; you can see the full set by clicking here.

About a year and a half ago, we posted a video on the Institute’s other English Apostolate, at the church of Ss Peter, Paul and Philomena in Wirral, England, in the Diocese of Shrewbury. The landmark building was nicknamed the “Dome of Home” during the Second World War, since it could be seen far out at sea and became a useful landmark for navigating back to England. The author of the original video, Mr Philip Chidell, has now expanded and updated it; it includes some interview footage with His Excellency Mark Davies, the Bishop of Shrewbury.
