This Weekend: the Feast of St. Francis de Sales

The feast of patron of St. Francis de Sales Oratory, and co-patron of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, approaches. On Saturday, January 29, 2011, the Oratory will celebrate Mass of the feast at 8am and 12:15pm. On Sunday, January 30, the feast will also be celebrated as an external solemnity, at 8am and 10 am.

Because St. Francis de Sales is a patron of the Institute, the faithful who assist at Mass at an Institute apostolate may obtain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions.

St. Francis de Sales, pray for us!
