Blessed Feast of the Immaculate Conception! On December 8th, the Shrine community celebrated the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Patronal Feast of the United States and of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.

For the first time in three years since the devastating fire, which destroyed the Institute's Headquarters  Shrine to Christ our King, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was offered once again within the newly sheltered walls of our National Shrine.

Thanks to your generosity, we were able to gather more than 200 coats, more than 30 pairs of gloves, more than 30 winter hats, more than 25 turkeys, and more than 30 Thanksgiving Dinner bags


The St. Philip Neri Seminary Society was established in an effort to obtain spiritual and monetary support for the seminarians studying with the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign PriestThe Society has developed two programs with these goals in mind: the Spiritual adoption program and the monetary Benefactor program.
