Favorite Images From Christ the King, Sarasota, Florida.

It has now been about a year and a half since the founding of the Christ the King chapel, run by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, in Sarasota, Florida. In just this short time, the Christ the King family has experienced some great moments, and here are just a few of my favorite pictures that I have taken over the last year and a half.

Above: The angel looks upon the newly renovated chapel.
Above: Bishop Frank J. Dewane (Center), Fr. James Fryar, FSSP (Left) and Fr. Fausto Stampiglia, SAC (Right) look upon the recently completed chapel before the dedication.
Above: Bishop Frank J. Dewane stands before the new altar on dedication day.

Above: The priests in the sacristy. We still do not know who Fr. Fausto is holding his arm around to his right. Possibly his guardian angel?
Above: The first Mass. I was in awe taking these pictures, knowing that Christ was building up his Church before my very eyes.
Above: The bishop gives a blessing and meets with the people.
