Let Them Sing!
Voice training. Soccer and volleyball. Games in Latin. Talent show and fairytale skits. Mix in a healthy dose of Faith and friendship – these are the ingredients of a fantastic Sacred Music Summer Camp. Help us raise $7,000 so more children can attend Camp this year!

For the past four summers, dozens of children age 10-17 have spent an intensive week in the beautiful Kentucky Hills, immersed in music, performance, and good old-fashioned summer fun. This year, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest offers the 5th annual Sacred Music Summer Camp, August 18-23.

We want this summer music camp to be accessible to as many young people as possible, and we need your help to make this first-rate learning experience affordable for families who are blessed with many talented children.

Our goal of $7,000 for this year’s camp will help us offer the best camp experience at an affordable cost, keep the tuition low, and help provide need scholarships for those who can least afford to send their children.

It’s a great camp!

When they come to camp, they will study music theory, vocal techniques, Latin, and liturgy under excellent and dedicated instructors. An Institute priest will be present for daily Mass and confession. In addition to music, the camp is about team work, friendships, spirit of service, and confidence to perform.

We know from experience that music training during the formative years of youth is a precious, priceless gift that will last a lifetime. Your generosity will be deeply appreciated, and will be amply rewarded when you hear these heavenly voices serve the Church’s liturgy in years to come.

Please donate!
We welcome any contribution you can make; no amount is too large or too small. Help us spread the word, and share this link with family and friends so that they too can participate in the music education of the future generation.

Dear Faithful:

I would like to wish you a very blessed Feast of SS. Peter and Paul, the Princes of the Apostles. Our Lady of Fatima reminds us how important it is to pray for the Holy Father. The Institute of Christ the King, with its Roman Spirit, is naturally most intimately dedicated to the rich Tradition of Holy Mother Church. The Princes of the Apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul, are witnesses to Christ Who is the Cornerstone of the Church, Who is the Head of His Mystical Body, and Who reigns victoriously, even if at times some dark clouds may hang over the Church.

The Popes are the uninterrupted successors of St. Peter. Each Pope considers himself the “Servant of the Servants of God” and he knows that the Church does not belong to him, but to Christ, and that he is a steward only and must give an account one day to the Master. True humility, faithfulness, courage, perseverance, the uncompromising love for the Truth of our Holy Catholic Faith, together with profound charity and true wisdom, have characterized the saintly Popes of history. The Catholic Church is there where the Pope is, and so we have to be always gathered in mind and heart prayerfully around the Holy Father, and offer sacrifices to the Most Holy Trinity so that he may discharge his Holy Office for the greater glory of God Almighty and for the salvation of souls.

The Holy Sacrifice of Mass will be offered at High Mass today for Our Holy Father Pope Francis. I ask you for your prayers for the four priests, ten deacons and nine sub-deacons who will be ordained for the Institute of Christ the King this week in Florence, Italy. Visit our website at and!

With the assurance of my prayers, Canon Richard von Menshengen
