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.
