In a post entitled: “AN APPEAL FOR THE ‘NEW EVANGELISATION’: Help the Diocese support those New Religious Communities coming to us” available on the Lancaster Diocese website, the Right Reverend, Michael Campbell, Bishop of Lancaster, says “the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, will, in the autumn of this year, assume responsibility and care for St. Walburge’s church, Preston. This highly regarded Institute of priests, who use the Extraordinary Form fully approved by the Holy See, will bring much needed life to this magnificent church with a daily routine of prayer and worship, open to all. The Diocese is most grateful for the Institute’s willingness to assume this challenging apostolate of prayer and devotion at St. Walburge’s.”
