ICKSP is given responsibility for a second Shrine Church in Preston

The Bishop of Lancaster, the Rt Rev. Michael Campbell OSA, has announced that the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest will assume the direct administration of English Martyrs’ church in Preston.

Announcing the decision, Bishop Campbell said, ‘This decision will enable the sustainability and care of your magnificent church so that it can be open each day for prayer and worship as a fully operational shrine church dedicated to the devotion of St Thomas of Canterbury and the English Martyrs on the old Gallows Hill – with a renewed zeal and energy.  English Martyrs will remain part of the Parish of St John XXIII but will specifically provide for the celebration of Holy Mass and the other Sacraments in the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite in a similar way to St Walburge’s.’

To inaugurate their ministry at English Martyrs’, Pontifical Mass will be celebrated by the Rt Rev. Michael Campbell OSA, Bishop of Lancaster, in the presence of Mgr Gilles Wach, Superior General of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, on Sunday 24 September 2017 at 11.30am in the Shrine Church. All are welcome!
