Hello. After a fairly long time of discernment, beginning first when I was around 14, now comming 21, I had applied this year for the diocesan seminary.
During the examinations and interviews in June, I had decided this wasn’t a good path to take. The questionable orthodoxy took precedence over the very small numbers (just 2 last year) but the new chapel they had inherited pretty much confirmed by suspicions.
I am now considering the Institute of Christ the King. They look very impressive. It would involve me moving country and learning a new language to study, which is a fairly big step, but not so much that it isn’t stopping me from considering them. Only, I feel a little bit beyond my pay grade. I love the TLM immensely and I would also occasionally serve (as a secondary) to our own two monthly Masses in this Diocese, but my latin needs much improvement and I feel a little out of my league.
I will be meeting Canon Wulfran next month which I am really looking forward to, but I just want to ask for some advice about the order if anyone would be able to offer any. The web information available is fair, but still slim pickings. I know due to their vow of poverty the likelihood of having someone to talk to over the internet would be fairly unlikely, but I would appreciate any extra information, resources or advice anyone would be kind enough to offer.
Thank you very much in advance.
