Thanks to National Fund, $3 Million Mark Reached!

One year ago, the National Fund for Sacred Places awarded the Shrine a grant of $250,000 to be paid in two installments on the conditions that we raise $500,000 on our own and that the roof be completed. Thanks to you all, we reached and surpassed the fundraising goal of $500,000 earlier this year, and the roof has been completed!

This week, the National Fund awarded the Institute of Christ the King the remaining $125,000 to push us over our $3 Million goal for Phase I of our restoration campaign to build our National Shrine to Christ the King.

We wish to thank the National Fund for Sacred Places for their generous support, and we assure you of our continued prayers in gratitude for your part in helping us build a National Shrine to Christ the King. May the Holy Infant Jesus bless you this Christmas and always for what you have done for Him this year!

Prayer Campaign for the Institute’s National Shrine

By the grace of God and thanks to your help, Phase I is complete and the panic of the situation is over. The building is secure and protected from the elements. Now we are ready to build the Institute’s namesake Shrine on our own property so that the reign of Christ our King may bless you, our Institute and our nation.

As we now begin Phase II to build the Institute’s National Shrine, our Prior General, Monsignor Gilles Wach, and our Provincial Superior, Canon Matthew Talarico, ask us to pray publicly the Memorare each day for this very intention: to build the Institute’s National Shrine to Christ the King.

Through constant prayer to St. Joseph, we have been blessed with shelter and stability. Now by our devotion to the Immaculate Conception, Our Blessed Mother will procure for us all that is necessary to build for her Divine Infant Son a National Shrine to honor Him as King.
