The Institute of St. Philip Neri opens a seminary in Berlin


Founded in Berlin in 2003, the Institute of St. Philip Neri is a community of Catholic priests in the tradition of the Congregation of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri. The Institute was canonically erected as a society of pontifical right in 2004 by the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, with use of the liturgical books in force in 1962. On November 1, the Institute established a seminary in the form of a studium which was given the name Baronius-Akademie. Father Jatzkowski is the rector. There are currently two seminarians, but it has the capacity to accommodate up to 25 students, including auditors.

Directly or indirectly, the mustard seed of Econe has grown into a flourishing tree.

This is totally fantastic and wonderful news. God bless all who are involved and the seminarians and students attending.

My question is as to why the Institute is not an Oratory. There is probably a history here.
