Feast of St. Benedict

This is a first class feast for the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. The faithful who assist at Mass at an Institute apostolate may obtain a plenary indulgence, under the usual conditions. 

Solemn High Mass at St. Francis de Sales Oratory tonight at 6:30pm. 

St. Benedict, ora pro nobis!

I am confused. Today is not the rdast of St. Benedict...it is July 11.

Dear Connie,

According to the venerable and ancient Roman Calendar, his feast is today. This day has been his feast day for more than a thousand years. It is true that the modified modern calendar shifts the date. But the traditional calendar is still in use, and proper to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

Happy feast day!
