First Weeks of St Joseph Oratory, Detroit

One of our regular readers and guest contributors, Teresa Chisholm, has sent in a bit of good news from Detroit about the new ICK Oratory getting off the ground there. “In the first three weeks of liturgical life at the new St Joseph Oratory in Detroit, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest has celebrated many beautiful High Masses with choir and chant schola - the First Mass on October 16, the Solemnity of Christ the King (the titular feast of the Institute), All Saints, and All Souls (with Fauré’s Requiem). On the following Sunday, November 6, the Rector, Rev. Canon Michael Stein, began his Lesson in Liturgy series with “The Reason for Liturgy: God then Man.” He encouraged the faithful to turn for additional study to Rev. Dr. Nicholas Gihr’s treatise The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass: Dogmatically, Liturgically and Ascetically Explained. All are invited to the next Lesson in Liturgy on November 27, following the 11 am High Mass, which will cover ‘Praying with your Missal: for Mind and Heart.’ The new weekly schedule for St. Joseph Oratory may be found on its website and Facebook page. Thanks be to God for His many blessings on this new parish.”
