Many of our family, friends, benefactors, and supporters know that we were founded on May 25th, 1947 on the Feast of Pentecost. That means that beginning in 2022, we celebrate our 75th year since our foundation, our Diamond Jubilee! And we will be marking this milestone all year in thanksgiving for our Founder, Father Gerald Fitzgerald, sP, and for our call to the life of spiritual sanctification of priests. We were founded to give our lives in prayer and sacrifice to Christ for the sake of his priests, especially through Eucharistic Adoration. Recent history has only highlighted the need for this vocation.
The formal “kickoff” of our celebrations can be no better than offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Bishop of Knoxville will join us for this joyful day thanking God for Holy Mother Church’s approval of our foundation and Rule of Life as an Institute in the Church. Please pray for us that we will remain ever faithful to our calling for the sake of God’s anointed ones.
We hope to share posts, photos, videos etc throughout the year as we open our archives and share appropriate tidbits.
