FAQ

  • Do different movements within the Church weaken her tradition?

    The Church is not a centralised system, but is rather the living Body of Christ with many members. Consequently, there are also many spiritual families within it. It is a sign of the strength of the Church’s holy tradition that, throughout the world communities of monks, friars, orders of nuns and other communities are springing up. The Institute of St Philip Neri is intended primarily for German secular priests, who wish to minister  in the spirit of St Philip, and with the accompanying Romanità which was characteristic of his priestly charism.

  • Don’t you need to link the Old and New Rites?

    The perceived ban on the Old Rite inflicted a deep wound on the Church. Many of the faithful came close to losing their faith because of it. Various religious orders, dioceses and communities have had their proper liturgies throughout the history of the Church, and the unity of the faith is not hindered by liturgical diversity, but is rather strengthened by it. Thus, the Institute humbly offers a particular service to the Church by cultivating the Old Rite exclusively and with great care.

  • Why Berlin?

    The Institute has limitless opportunities to carry out good works here in the German capital. A new spiritual community could hardly have a site with greater potential. In addition, anything that happens in the nation’s capital has a good chance of being noticed throughout the whole country.
