Photos: 25th Anniversary Dinner of the Institute in Oakland (Sept. 12, 2015)


Last September 12, 2015, the 25th anniversary fundraising dinner of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest was held at the Father Kozina Hall of St. Margaret Mary’s (Oakland, CA). It also marked the conclusion of the apostolate’s 10th anniversary celebration of it’s arrival in the Diocese of Oakland under the invitation of then Bishop (now Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit) Allen H. Vigneron. There was a festive entertainment, an abundance of good food plus great company of kids and adults, young and old! Two kinds of fundraising auctions took place — a silent one (with some items brought by Canon Meney in the Institute’s Motherhouse in Gricigliano, Italy while the rest were donations) and the not-so-silent one where Canon Meney and Abbe Kevin took turns in running (literally!) around and collecting $5 from anyone who wanted to bid for a crucifix carved by Abbe Kevin. Afterwards, the September birthday celebrants (Canon Meney, Canon Ueda and Abbe Kevin) blew out their birthday candles together as the people sang happy birthday. Here are some of the photos from the photo gallery.
