First Mass at St. Joseph Oratory on October 16th

“We are grateful for the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest and the dedication they have to evangelizing through use of the Extraordinary Form. The Institute has shown tremendous energy in conveying a sense of the sacred through their ministry around the country and the world. We are especially encouraged that their ministry may also be instrumental in preserving St. Joseph, one of the Archdiocese of Detroit’s most beautiful and historic worship sites.”
     - Archbishop Allen Vigneron


The Institute of Christ the King Soverign Priest (ICRSS) will soon begin a new apostolate at St. Joseph Oratory in Detroit. The first Mass will be celebrated by the Institute’s Vicar General, Monsignor Michael Schmitz, on Sunday, October 16 at 12:00pm. The music accompaniment for this festive Mass will be Mozart's Missa Brevis in G Major. Social to follow in the parish hall.


“Deeply grateful to Archbishop Vigneron for his gracious invitation, our entire Institute family is very glad for this new apostolate in Detroit. St. Joseph Oratory will be a unique spiritual home offering Masses with sacred music, daily confessions, days of recollection, classes in spirituality and doctrine, and youth formation activities among others.”
   - Rev. Canon Matthew Talarico, provincial superior

Does this mean that St. Joe's is no longer part of Mother of Divine Mercy parish?
