For the week commencing Monday 26th August through Friday 30th August, the Canons of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest gathered at the motherhouse in the beautiful hills of Tuscany at the International Seminary in Gricigliano. The week is an important occasion in the lives of the ICKSP Clergy: in addition to providing them with spiritual, liturgical and practical instruction, the gathering is an opportunity for the priests to enjoy a fraternal reunion with brother priests, who rarely have an opportunity to see one another. In addition, the Canons received their assignments for the coming year.
Below is a photographic record of the week.
